We are sure that members of the local community will recognise the current unusual circumstances surrounding the possibility of commemorating Remembrance Sunday this year. While the UK Government has now published guidance (published 3 Nov 2020), the required actions and responsibilities mean that there is insufficient time to organise a public event. However, we do not want to let this commemoration pass us by and we want to assure you that the fallen of the Breamish Valley are never forgotten. Consequently, a wreath will be laid by May Wilson BEM on behalf of the local community.
This is a non-public event
11:00 am on Sunday 8 November 2020
Breamish Valley War Memorial
Community Garden, Powburn
Wreath to be laid by May Wilson BEM
Followed by a two-minute silence
We encourage all local residents to observe the national two-minute silence at 11:00 am.
A number of small crosses will be left in the Community Garden for anyone to use free of charge to remember any of the fallen throughout the day.
[Please remember that if you do visit the Community Garden, we will be in a national lockdown situation and so the regulations regarding gathering outdoors and with other households current at the time will apply.]
