Thornaby Town Council
Remembrance Sunday 8th November 2020
This year due to the current situation regarding coronavirus, Thornaby Town Council will not be holding a formal service at the Cenotaph although the Mayor and Mayoress will be laying wreaths at some point during the day to pay their respects to those who have given their lives for our freedom.
The Royal British Legion are urging people to participate remotely and visually show their support by placing a poppy in their window or by standing on their doorstop for the two minute silence at 11am on Sunday 8th instead.
We hope that next year we can hold our usual parade and service to honour those that have fallen.

Other Council news
This is the first stop destination for news and information about all aspects of life in Thornaby and what is happening at Thornaby Town Council. The Council was created in 1995 to represent the people of Thornaby, providing both a voice for the town and also a range of local services. All our Councillors are all volunteers and are elected for a four year term to serve the local area.
We work with government and local people to provide services, represent local interests, and we organise local events such as the popular Thornaby Show, Remembrance Sunday Parade and the Battle of Britain service. We provide every household in Thornaby with the Thornaby Pride Magazine, which is delivered four times a year, which provides lots of information for residents.
Please feel free to regularly check this website for latest news for everything that will be happening in Thornaby. We would also like your input, so if you would like to promote your local event, please get in touch.
