Tomorrow Umbrella.co.uk staff will be observing a two minute silence for Remembrance Day. We will be turning our phone systems to answering service for approximately 8 minutes from 10.55am. Thank you for your support and normal service will resume immediately after.

It was at this time, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 that World War I formally ended. It's a chance for us all to remember the sacrifices made by the armed forces and civilians, in times of war, both in the past and present.

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.
