Remembrance Day 2020
Published: 05 November 2020
Due to the current pandemic restrictions and constantly evolving situation, unfortunately no Remembrance Day Parade, event or service will be able to take place this year. Instead wreaths will be individually laid in keeping with government guidance and following the advice of the Neighbourhood Police Team and Church of England. Wreaths will be placed by representatives of the Royal British Legion, Police Force, Parish Council, Fire Service and Royal
Lifeboats Association at the War Memorial. Other associations such as the Guiding and Scouting Associations are asked to lay their wreaths separately after this.
We politely ask that members of the public do not attend this year and we would request that anyone wishing to
pay their respects visits the war memorial individually later in the day.
In line with similar activities elsewhere around the country, it is suggested that residents throughout the village wishing to observe the two minutes silence come out onto their doorsteps, should they wish, at 11am.
The Royal British Legion have a poppy template available to download from their website and children are encouraged to decorate and colour one for display in their windows.
