Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

Normally, this time of year we are planning the Remembrance Service and Parade. However, with the ongoing pandemic, there are no guarantees that restrictions will be relaxed sufficiently to allow for large gatherings. We have been monitoring Government guidelines as well as the Royal British Legionís recommendation. Whilst The Poppy Appeal will still happen, it will look very different from previous years and will largely be virtual. However, we have had to make the difficult decision, along with many other Towns, to cancel this yearís service and parade. We will not forget our fallen. We will remember them. A small service with limited representatives (by invite only) will take place on Sunday 8th November which will include the Last Post, two minute silence at 11am and the Reveille. To avoid large crowds, we have decided not to apply for a road closure. Therefore, to ensure we can reach as many people as possible, Brixham Town Council will live stream the service on their Facebook site. Anyone that is not on Facebook, but with internet access, will be able to view the event by visiting Sea Tang Guest Houseís website and watching their webcam or watch it on YouTube. We strongly recommend that if you normally attend the service that you pay your respects in a different way this year, your safety is paramount. We anticipate that many groups who would normally take part in the parade will still want to lay wreaths and we want to support this as much as possible. Therefore, if you have ordered a wreath and want to lay it at the memorial on Sunday 8th November, please contact the Town Council on 01803 859678 or email us at info@brixhamtowncouncil.gov.uk by 31st October 2020. Brixham Town Council will set up a schedule to facilitate as many groups as possible. You MUST register your group. Please DO NOT just turn up. All groups will be limited to a maximum of two representatives to ensure that we can adhere to any social distancing requirements that may be in place in November.
