The borough will join other towns and cities in the UK to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in combat.

Members of the community are invited to join in services being held across the borough, which will take a moment to pause on Remembrance Day.

The Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Brian Salinger, will lay a wreath at the Hendon memorial on November 12 and observe the two minute silence at 11am, with Army Reserve personnel, cadets, councillors and ex-servicemen and women in attendance.

He said: "We will never forget the many people who joined our armed forces and made huge sacrifices for us while they served for their country.

"Every year on Remembrance Sunday, we pause to reflect and pay tribute to the brave people who fought for us in the two World Wars, as well as recent conflicts.

"I’m honoured to be able to lay this wreath to commemorate their memories on behalf of the people of Barnet."
