Hereford City Council will be working with the Royal British Legion to make sure that despite the restrictions on public gatherings, those who gave their lives in two world wars and many other conflicts since 1918 will be remembered with dignity and respect this Remembrance Sunday.
Six veterans, the maximum number allowed to gather in one place at one time, will be placing wreaths and observing the traditional two minutes silence this year.
Hereford City Council have created a unique video to premiere on Sunday at five minutes to 11am, which includes the two minute silence. This video pays tribute to those who served and fell in conflict, and includes a service from the Vicar of St Peter’s and St James’ Church, words from The Bishop of Hereford, and footage of the ceremonies. You can watch the video along with us on the day on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/HerefordCityCouncil
Throughout the day there will be access to the war memorial, and St Peter’s church will be open for those wishing to pause and reflect in peace, or to shelter from the weather whilst waiting for an opportunity to go to the memorial while no-one else is there. These arrangements have been worked out to enable as dignified and proper an observance as possible, whilst keeping everyone safe, and the Council asks for everyone’s co-operation in doing this.
