Remembrance Sunday 2020 - No Public Attendance

Remembrance Day is fast approaching, but the annual ceremony this year is being modified to ensure the safety of veterans and members of the public as the country battles the ongoing coronavirus situation.

Unfortunately due to the coronavirus situation there will be no parade taking place on Remembrance Sunday this year and members of the public are asked not to gather on that morning near the war memorial.

In keeping with the social gathering guidelines and to avoid a large crowd amassing, representatives from local groups and organisations have been invited to lay their wreaths in small groups throughout the morning and afternoon at timed intervals.

Therefore there are currently plans for a service to be held on the morning of Sunday 8th November with a small number of invited attendees only. The Council is encouraging members of the general public to stay safe at home this year and instead is hoping to be able to live stream the service on Facebook for residents to watch.

Details of this are still being finalised but further updates will be posted on this page as they become available.

Please note these plans are subject to change should the coronavirus change locally or nationally before the 8th November.
