Trams will temporarily stop on Sunday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War – and free travel will be offered to heroes of the Armed Forces. At 11am, all tram services will come to a standstill – allowing customers and NET staff to observe a two-minute silence for the sacrifices of our servicemen and women. Mike Mabey, NET’s head of operations, said: “As 11am approaches, all trams will come to a stop in a safe place. “Announcements will be made across the network inviting customers to join us in paying tribute to all who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War and more recent conflicts. “To show our appreciation of the dedication and heroism shown by members of the armed services, past and present, on Sunday we’re also offering free travel for veterans and serving Army, Navy and Air Force personnel. “All they need to do is to show services ID.” A remembrance parade is planned on Sunday morning between 11.45am and 12.30pm. It starts in the Lace Market and finishes in Old Market Square. NET warned customers to expect “minor delays” during this period and a spokesman advised customers to allowed extra time for their journey.
