REMEMBRANCE Day was celebrated slightly differently across Warwick district this year due to lockdown.
A small invitation-only wreath laying was held in the town centre while residents paid tribute by holding a two-minute silence on their doorsteps. And a local care home opted to mark the day by installing a permanent war memorial.
Residents and staff at Priors House, on Old Milverton Lane held a service which saw residents read poems and lay poppy wreaths. There was also a socially-distanced cornet performance featuring melodies such as Last Post.
Home manager Francine Summers said: “This time of year is especially significant for residents, as many of them were born during the Second World War and grew up in the post-war era, most likely listening to their parents’ stories of that time.
“I’m incredibly proud of how hard everyone worked to create a permanent war memorial for the home and organise our Remembrance service.”
