Residents urged to pay respects with a moment of silence and follow ceremonies online on Remembrance Sunday

Leamington Editorial 5th Nov, 2020   0

RESIDENTS are being urged to act responsibly on Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance Day.

Some ceremonies have been cancelled, but those going ahead on November 8 and Wednesday (November 11) will be limited to those participating.

People are instead urged to follow events online and show their respects by taking part in a national moment of silence at 11am as the annual Cenotaph ceremony takes place.

Warwickshire County Council leader Izzi Seccombe said: “Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday are dedicated to remembering the sacrifices made by our armed forces over the last 150 years. This is something that we do with pride each year.




“In 2020, we will still honour and remember the bravery and sacrifice of our armed forces, but we must do so differently. We now must make sacrifices to control the virus.”
