Remembrance Sunday 8th November 2020

 The Act of Remembrance will take place in Cressage as usual with assembly at the War Memorial at 10.50 am.    There will be no church service.   Road closure will be sought, as usual, which will ensure the maximum space for social distancing around the memorial.


Please consider if it is essential for you to attend and consider the risks in doing so. Persons attending must follow the following rules

  • Public can only attend the event with their own household or those in their support bubble, or individually with one other person from outside their household.
  • Members of the public are legally permitted to stop and watch the event as spectators, but are discouraged from attending, and should be mindful of the risk that such events pose, especially to the clinically vulnerable and veterans who are often elderly.
  • Persons banned from attending - the symptomatic, those who are isolating as close contacts of a case or who has been advised to do so by NHS Test & Trace and those quarantining
  • QR codes will displayed in public places for NHS Test and Trace or you can call the clerk on 01743 741611 to give your details 

This is the focus for our village Remembrance.   If you would like to lay your own wreath or cross in memory of lives lost in conflict or to remember a family member this will be the opportunity to do so.     (If you would like to order a wreath or a small wooden cross, please contact me on 510712 or vwtodd@hotmail.co.uk).  

The Poppy Appeal 2020

This year The Poppy Appeal will be significantly different due to the pandemic and the rules and regulations attached to it.    These rules may change between now and Remembrance Time but I wanted to alert you to the changes afoot.

The priority of the British Legion this year is to:-

              • Ensure the safety of volunteers, staff and the public.

              • Enable people to donate and wear a poppy at Remembrancetide.

• Enable people to donate and lay a wreath at Remembrancetide.

Therefore there will be no door to door collections by our teams of volunteers in any towns and villages throughout the U.K.   There will be a static box in the Cressage Village Store, Cambers & Crosshouses Store with some of the usual content.

However, with the co-operation of R.B.L. corporate partners both nationally and regionally poppies will be available with the collaboration of Sainbury’s Asda, Tesco, banks and on-line retailers.      The Appeal this year will be returning to basics and the ‘paper’ poppy will be the focus for remembrance.    VE and VJ pins will be available too but in limited numbers.

Additional items can be purchased from the Poppy Shop www.poppyshop.org.uk
