Remembrance Day 2020.
Due to the second lockdown Haverhill Town Council’s Remembrance Day plans have changed and been scaled back further. In accordance with the government guidelines a restricted service with limited numbers of representatives from local groups and organisations will be held at the War Memorial on Sunday 8 November. Members of the public unfortunately will not be able to attend but everyone can watch via a live stream of the service.
You can join the commemoration from 10.40am on Sunday 8 November by going to the Haverhill Town Council’s social media channels
The ceremony will include wreath laying, addresses and prayers, the national anthem and a rendition of Reveille to mark the sacrifices and bravery of the fallen.
The town council also invites the people of Haverhill to come to their doorsteps at 11.00am for a community two minute silence on 8 November so that we may remember, together.
The public silence on the High Street on 11 November will not be taking place to avoid the potential of a public gathering.
In this most difficult of years Haverhill Town Council is keen to keep up the traditions and ceremonies that mean so much to the community, and is taking all the required precautions to ensure that this occasion is marked in a Covid-safe manner.
