We Will Remember Them – Remembrance 2020
This weekend is Remembrance Sunday and we all know that it is disappointing that we cannot come together at War Memorials and Cenotaphs across the county in the way we normally do.
However, we are encouraging you to observe your own Act of Remembrance on your doorsteps at 11am, taking part in the national two-minute silence.
Last week, Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, paid his own respects ahead of Armistice Day at the memorial stone at Fire Service HQ. A wreath is also being laid on our behalf in Brentwood by the Borough Council on Sunday.
You can visit the Royal British Legion for more information on commemorating Armistice Day at home and to donate money to the Poppy Appeal. Also check out your local council websites and social media feeds for information on how you can live stream local socially distanced services from your own homes.
