    According to my calculations the Break-coffee and Refreshments should be 11.45am not 1130am.Best wishes Ronnie.

    Don’t forget the 2 minutes silence as its Remembrance Day.

  3. Carly Bailey says:

    Thank you for drawing our attention to the fact our conference is held on the eleventh day of the eleventh month and I have conducted a great deal of research into the origins of how silence has been used since, for example, the Quakers, several hundred years ago and the origins of Armistice Day and more recently Remembrance Sunday. I have come to the conclusion that it might be quite difficult to successfully have one or two minute’s silence at 11 o’clock looking at the programme and I would not wish to do this clumsily. Also, my reading around would suggest that Remembrance Sunday has now become the time when we observe two minute’s silence and therefore if it becomes impossible for me to conduct one or two minute’s silence at 11 o’clock may I respectfully suggest that people can remember whoever they wish to do on Remembrance Sunday at 11 o’clock. If anyone has a problem with this, please either post on our Facebook page in response or email Carly ( and we will try to answer any queries. Dr Linda Buchan
