For the second year in a row the Remembrance Sunday service in Tower Gardens, King’s Lynn, will be streamed for members of the public to watch at home.
The service on Sunday 14 November will not be a ‘closed event’ like last year. The Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Cllr Harry Humphrey, has said: “Remembrance Sunday is as important this year as any, but to stay safe we will be limiting the number of people attending to ensure social distancing and other measures can be in place to make the service Covid-secure.
“Remembrance Sunday will be marked at an event in Tower Gardens. The usual local organisations will be represented but the number of people attending will be limited. Please contact our civics team now if you are part of an organisation who would like to be involved.
“The service will be streamed on the borough council Facebook page and I hope that you will watch the event at home and, at 11am, remember with us.”
Attendees at the service will be from military organisations and some dignitaries. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are an organisation who would like to be represented.
People attending the ceremony in Tower Gardens will be asked to socially distance, observe the 1 metre plus rule, wear a facemask if they can and not attend if they have any Covid-19 symptoms.
A smaller parade of approximately 50 people will leave the Town Hall for Tower Gardens, followed by the laying of around 65 wreaths in Tower Gardens and a short service of Remembrance.
