People wishing to pay their respects are being reminded about events taking place across Bath and North East Somerset to commemorate Remembrance Day on November 11th and Remembrance Sunday on November 12th.

Councillor Sarah Moore, Chair of Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: “On Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday it’s important that we join together to pay our respects to those who have served in the armed forces. It’s a time for us all to reflect and remember those who have put their lives at risk and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I hope many people in our communities will join an event near them to mark the occasion."
