At the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918, a peace treaty was signed between the Western European nations which had been fighting in the First World War.

Ever since then, British society has paused at 11 a.m. on November 11th to remember those who have given their lives as members of the Armed Forces.

This year, 11th November falls on a Thursday, and there will be two acts of Remembrance at the University of Glamorgan – in A35, Crawshay House, on the Teforest Campus, and in the foyer of the Tramsheds Building on the Lower Glyntaf site.

All are welcome to attend, and you are asked to arrive by 10.50 a.m., when there will be a brief ceremony. Silence will be observed at 11.00 a.m., and a wreath of poppies will be laid.

The Act of Remembrance will also be streamed throughout the University for those who cannot attend.

For further information, please contact the Chaplaincy.
