CHRISTMAS IS COMMING !
Due to the government’s announcement of a second national lockdown commencing on Thursday 5th the November Remembrance Sunday this year is set to be a very different occasion as Services and Acts of Remembrance are changed but ‘we will remember them.’ There are other ways we can remember and show our appreciation to those who gave their lives for us. Here are some ideas that others across the country will be doing.
To allow members of our community to have their own act of remembrance the church service, which cannot be in the church due to the lockdown, will be held at 6pm on ZOOM. To access this please click on the link below.
2 MINUTE SILENCE
ON YOUR DOORSTEP
We appreciate that many residents will want to take part in an act of remembrance and we would ask you to do this by standing on your doorstep for the two-minute silence at 11am on Sunday 8th November and, or on Wednesday 11th November. Earlier in this extraordinary year, we stood on our doorsteps to clap for the NHS, so let us stand together again to show our thanks to those who died for us.
DISPLAY A POPPY PICTURE
IN YOUR WINDOW
The Royal British Legion are encouraging people to download, print, colour and display a poppy in a window in return for a donation. It would be lovely to see lots of poppies displayed around the villages, if you are interested please follow the link below to their website.
AT THE MEMORIAL
Paint a poppy on a pebble and lay it at the war memorial anytime leading up to 11th November. (see pictures for ideas)
CHRISTMAS IS COMING !
Advent is the traditional time of year leading up to Christmas.
Advent means 'Coming". There are three meanings of 'coming' that Christians describe at Christmas.
Join in the story and sing your way to Christmas at this years services on zoom.
