Thank you to the volunteers who today have put the Poppies and Silent Soldiers up in Stapleford as #StaplefordRemembers ahead of Remembrance Day.

We would like to thank Nottinghamshire County Council for giving us permission to put up the Poppies, these will be removed within two weeks of Remembrance Day.

#StaplefordRemembers was set up as an umbrella group to Stapleford Community Group to bring together groups, organisations and individuals throughout Stapleford and are already planning events to take place in 2020 for both #StaplefordRemembers the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and also #StaplefordRemembers the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day and are looking forward to working with as many others throughout Stapleford to put these events on. We will update with more details as they are finalised.

    Thank you for your efforts. As this particular event if local to Stapleford, as are those who have fixed the soldiers and the poppies I don’t see why you need ‘permission’ from the county. The county does not seem to do a lot.

    The County is responcible for street lighting
    The poppies ans silent soldiers are fixed to the lamp posts. Rediculuos bureaucracy biy that’s the way it goes.
