Military Preparation learners mark Remembrance Sunday

November 9, 2015

In honour of Remembrance Sunday, our Military Prep learners and staff spent the weekend attending Remembrance Parades across Lancashire.

Always held on the second Sunday in November, Remembrance Sunday is held as a way to commemorate the contribution of British military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and other conflicts.

The Queen marks the event at the Centotaph Memorial in central London, leading tributes to the UK’s war dead along with members of the Government and dignitaries.

Ceremonies are also held at local war memorials attended by the public, ex-servicemen and women members of the armed forces, military cadet forces and youth organisations. Wreaths of poppies are laid on the memorials and two minutes’ silence is held at 11 a.m.

Learners from all 3 centres will also be attending events of remembrance on Wednesday 11th November in Blackpool, Burnley and Radcliffe.

Business Manager for MPP Andrew Emmett said;

“I’m so very proud of our learners and staff for attending Remembrance parades this weekend and showing their support for the United Kingdom’s service men and women.”

Take a look at our Military Preparation Programmes, available at our sites in Burnley, Blackpool and Bury.
