Remembrance Sunday 2020

Remembrance Sunday this year was a necessarily muted affair. 

No parades, no church services, no memorial services, large groups or large events.  A national day of remembrance without being able to come together as a nation. For many, tribute was paid from their front doorstep or within the confines of their own home.

As a nation, the UK has over the last century come together on Remembrance Sunday to remember those who have served our country.  A moment in time to stop and pay tribute to those who gave so much before and those who still do today.

You could be forgiven for thinking that this year the mark of remembrance would be less than the years before.  You would however be wrong. 

At all the local war memorials there was something happening.  Not necessarily at exactly 11am, not necessarily a service of remembrance but they were remembered. 

Wreaths were laid, prayers were said, respect was paid. 

People came out on their own or with members of their households.  Small acts of remembrance from families and friends.  Local service men and women, members of the cadet forces, members of the local community.  So many coming together whilst staying apart. 

Remembrance Sunday 2020 although different from previous years has still been a day of remembrance.
