Services and parades will be taking place across Barnet this weekend as local residents mark Remembrance Sunday. 

The mayor of Barnet, Cllr Nagus Narenthira, will lay a wreath at the Hendon War Memorial on Sunday (November 12th). 

The council leader and leader of the opposition will also be in attendance along with veterans, other representatives of the armed forces and emergency services, and the Salvation Army Band. 

The parade will arrive at Hendon War Memorial at 10.40am and two minutes of silence will be observed at 11am.

The mayor said: “We will remember all those who gave their lives for our peace and freedom in conflicts across the world. Remembrance Sunday is always a very moving and poignant day, a chance for the whole borough to mark this important occasion. Lest we forget.”
