The ceremony will take place by the flag pole outside the council offices on Gloucester Road at 11am.

It will be followed by a rendition on the bugle of The Last Post before a sea cadet lowers the flag.

The two minutes silence will be observed, giving members, staff and visitors the opportunity to make their own personal silent tribute to those who have died in the service of their country.

At 11.02am the bugler will pay Reveille and the flag will be raised to full mast followed by a prayer.

Tewkesbury Borough Mayor, Councillor Claire Wright, who will be concluding the ceremony, said "Remembrance Day gives us all the opportunity to remember those who gave their lives during the two world wars, and in conflicts since, to maintain our peace and freedom for which we must be very grateful. It also allows us to give thought to those in our armed forces who are putting their lives at risk throughout the world today."
