Each year on the nearest Sunday to Armistice Day (11th November) at 11am a two minute silence is held to remember the fallen of Leek and District.
A short service takes place before and after the silence, starting at about 10.45am and finishing at about 11.15 am. Members of the public are welcome to come along and join in with the service.
Below are photographs from the 2009 service.
The Friends also arrange and promote the flying of flags on the anniversaries of certain key events from the world wars. Flags are flown on the monument to mark the following days:-
8th May - VE Day, 1st July - Start of the Battle of the Somme, 15th August - VJ Day, 15th September - Battle of Britain Day (organised by RAF Association), 24th October - Battle of El Alamein, 11th November - Armistice Day, Remembrance Sunday (nearest to Armistice Day)
