Staying Safe this Remembrance Sunday
In line with government COVID-19 guidance, and other national Remembrance Sunday events, this year Remembrance Sunday will be scaled back to a non-public event in Westbury Garden.
“We are encouraging people across the nations to ensure Remembrance Sunday is still marked appropriately by taking part in remote and socially distanced Remembrance activity, whether that be watching the service on television or pausing for the two minute silence.”
“I know that many residents will be keen to pay their respects on Remembrance Sunday. Sadly, again because of the current pandemic, the Royal British Legion and the Town Council have to ask you not to attend the ceremony in Westbury Garden this year, to allow representatives of our community organisations to lay their wreathes safely.
However, we invite you to mark the occasion in a similar fashion as we have done for our NHS, by observing the two-minute silence at home and on your doorsteps. Thank you.”
