11 December 2023

The Mayor of Peterborough, Councillor Nick Sandford, together with the President of the Peterborough Branch of the Royal British Legion, will be laying a holly wreath at the War Memorial in Bridge Street on Thursday 21 December 2023 at 10 am.

The short service and Christmas wreath-laying ceremony is being held to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict, in the run-up to Christmas.

The Mayor will lay a wreath on behalf of the citizens of Peterborough and the President of the Royal British Legion will be laying a wreath to represent members of the armed forces.

The Mayor, Councillor Sandford, said: "Christmas is a time to come together and brings great joy to many families. However, it can also be particularly hard for those who have lost loved ones who will have empty seats at their table. We will be laying our holly wreath to remember those we have lost."

For those unable to attend on the day, the service will be live-streamed on Peterborough City Council's YouTube channel and on Facebook.
