Sadly the Remembrance Sunday Parade at Frampton Cotterell has had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 regulations. There will be an Act of Remembrance on 8th November 2020 at 11am for invited representatives at St Peters Church. This is a non-public event.
However, the Royal British Legion are asking everyone to get involved with Remembrance Sunday activities and have suggested the following (more information can be found on their website https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/ ):
• Hold a small Remembrance service in your garden.
• Create a Remembrance space in your garden by planting plants that have a connection to Remembrance.
• Use Zoom, Facebook or another online meeting resource to host an online Remembrance service or activity.
• Set up a community Remembrance forum to discuss different residents’ Remembrance stories.
• Create an online exhibition of Remembrance related photos from local residents that schools or others could use to discuss local Remembrance activities.
• Do an online interview with a local veteran or someone currently serving to discuss what service and sacrifice means to them. You could send people the link and create an online audience.
• Open an online book of Remembrance that family, friends and others can sign as a mark of Remembrance.
• Write letters of Remembrance to veterans or serving personnel.
• Use our Remembrance education activities to help children learn about Remembrance.
• Create your own Remembrance art piece using our teaching resources – children and families could be asked to display something in their window like the rainbows for the NHS.
The Royal British Legion have also have created a virtual field of remembrance where people can virtually plant their Tribute from home, and explore other Tributes made to remember the fallen.
