Umbrella.co.uk to observe the Two Minute Silence today

Each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, many British people observe a Two Minute Silence. Armistice Day on 11 November marks the end of the First World War and is a day to remember and honour those who have paid the price for our freedom. Today remembers not only those who fought not only in World Wars, but the more than 12,000 British Servicemen and women killed or injured since 1945.

Those Umbrella.co.uk staff that wish to,  will be observing the Two Minute Silence at 11am today. We hope that our customers and suppliers will understand that we will not be making or answering calls whilst we pay our respects.
