Moment of Silent Reflection to be Held in Honour of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In line with national guidance, East Staffordshire Borough Council will be conducting a Moment of Silent Reflection on the eve of the funeral of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, taking place at 8pm on Sunday 18th September 2022.

Members of the public will be able to join the Mayor of East Staffordshire, Cllr Phil Hudson, for the Moment of Reflection at the War Memorial in Burton upon Trent or the Deputy Mayor of East Staffordshire, Cllr Chris Sylvester, for the event at the War Memorial in Uttoxeter, which will be conducted in partnership with Uttoxeter Town Council.

Residents are invited to attend the two events from 7:55pm, with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor making a statement at 7:58pm before the minute’s silence takes place at 8pm, concluding the national Moment of Silent Reflection. St Mary’s Church in Uttoxeter will also be holding a Memorial Service at 6pm, ahead of the Moment of Silent Reflection.

The national Moment of Silent Reflection on Sunday 18th September replaces the proposed two minute silence initially planned for the 19th September, at which time the funeral for Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be taking place.
