Remembrance Day 2020
Sunday, November 8, 2020
Due to the Pandemic we are unsure with regard to the Remembrance parade for 2020. We are hoping to have a socially distanced service for those unable to watch via social media. The 3 churches of Wollaston will be represented together with the Last Call from the Salvation Army. Representatives of the uniformed organisations have been asked to attend with their flag and the service will be ready by Kerry Woodrow. The names of the fallen will be read by the Chair of the Parish Council, Mr Lindsay Alvis and wreaths will be laid. Members of the public will be allowed in but we are not sure of numbers and in view of Rule of 6, only groups of 6 will be allowed in together. This will all be confirmed nearer the time as we approach November.
In the meantime, the Parish Council has purchased a commemoration bench which will be placed at the Cradle. The Parish Council have also purchased 2 silent soldier tommy silhouettes for the cemetery and Cradle on VE Day, VJ Day and Remembrance Sunday.
Our Remembrance Day Parade took place on Sunday 10 November 2019 and was well attended by representatives from the local Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Scouts and residents and visitors to the village. Thank you to those who attended. We raised £219.64 to be split between The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes this year. Poppy Wreaths were placed at the memorial in memory of those who gave and continue to give their lives for peace and freedom.
