Remembrance Sunday 8th November

      Comments Off on Remembrance Sunday 8th November

Updated Government guidance

In order to comply with the guidance, the event at the War Memorial on Sunday 8th November will be short and focussed on wreath laying, with numbers kept to a minimum.

Councillors from the Village, District and County Councils will be in attendance, along with representatives from the Royal British Legion, the Church, armed forces, fire service and voluntary organisations.

Members of the public are legally permitted to stop and watch the event as spectators, but capacity is limited and if the area becomes too crowded people may be turned away. Members of the public must remain in their household groups at all times and observe social distancing rules. Please use the white markers in the road. The yellow markers are for wreath layers. Please leave promptly, without socialising, at the end of the event.

You should not attend if you have tested positive for Covid-19, or you are experiencing symptoms or have been instructed to self-isolate.

Those who do not come to the War Memorial are encouraged to honour those who have fallen in wars and other conflicts by standing on their doorstep to mark the Two Minute Silence.
