Public encouraged to take part in Remembrance activity from home

SHARE:

Local councils are urging people who will be eager to take part in this year’s Remembrance commemorations to pay their respects in a safe and responsible way.

As this year’s Remembrance will now take place during the national lockdown in England, commemorations across the county will be different than usual and residents are being urged by all agencies in Cumbria to be mindful of the new restrictions and to remember at home.

There are several ways residents can show their support, whether that be displaying poppy posters in their home windows, sharing stories, photos and drawings online using the hashtag #CumbriaRemembers, watching the Service on television, or pausing for the Two Minute Silence in their home or on their doorsteps.

Other ways to support this year’s Poppy Appeal include donating online at www.britishlegion.org.uk  and taking part in the 11/11 challenge and virtual poppy runs.

Chair of Cumbria County Council, Councillor Christine Bowditch said:

"We are immensely proud of our Armed Forces past and present. Remembrance is a hugely significant part of our civic calendar and it is a great shame that we can’t mark it as we usually would but with the safety of veterans and residents the number one priority, we are urging people to 'remember at home' this year.”

For further information on what plans are taking place across the county, check with your local town, parish, district or borough council, church or local veterans’ association.
