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 ):

• 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.
