Remembrance Sunday & Remembrance Day
REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY AND REMEMBRANCE DAY
Sadly, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the normal Remembrance Sunday service and wreath laying at the War Memorial will not be going ahead this year. The Council would discourage any gatherings and remind everyone that the rule of 6 still applies.
The Council would urge everybody to please stop and remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice by observing 2 minutes silence at 11am on Sunday 8th November – the service from the Cenotaph will be broadcast live on BBC1, ITV and Sky.
A representative from St Swithun's Church and a representative from Leonard Stanley Parish Council will lay wreaths on behalf of the residents of our parish, at 11am on 11th November 2020. (But again, we would respectfully request no gatherings).
Please support the Royal British Legion – '2020' and 'VE75' official pins are available in Kings Stanley Coop, Yew Tree Stores and Images Hair Salon. Also, place a Poppy in your window, as a show of respect and to honour all the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces, Veterans and their families.
