RoadPeace annual ceremony of remembrance – 11th August at the National Memorial ArboretumAugust 7, 2018 // No Comments
Every year on the second Saturday of August, during National Road Victim month, a ceremony of remembrance is held at RoadPeace Wood at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. The next annual Ceremony of Remembrance at the RoadPeace Wood will be on:
Saturday 11th August 2018, from 2 PM.
All are invited to attend this annual ceremony where we gather to remember together those who have lost their lives on our roads. The ceremony offers an opportunity to reflect quietly in the peaceful and tranquil setting of the arboretum, as well as the chance to meet others who have come to remember loved ones.
During a short service in the Chapel, names of those being remembered are read out from oak leaves. This is followed by a short walk down to the RoadPeace Wood where the oakleaves are buried amongst the trees. Refreshments are served afterwards until the National Arboretum closes at 5pm.
