We will still remember them

To reduce the risk of Covid infections, especially for elderly veterans, this year's Remembrance Day and Armistice Day commemorations will be held online.

The Council has been left with no alternative other than to cancel this year’s Remembrance Service and Parade but is giving local people a chance to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice from home, with an online, pre-recorded broadcast on Remembrance Sunday, 8th November - in line with the time honoured tradition.

Residents will be able to view the virtual service on the Council website at www.rotherham.gov.uk/remembrance and on the Council's social media pages at 10.15am on Sunday, 8th November and on Wednesday, 11th November.

The public is being advised to pay their respects in the week ahead from Monday, 2nd November through to Armistice Day, Wednesday, 11th November to avoid crowds gathering at the Cenotaph and to ensure social distancing.

The Royal British Legion is suggesting a number of ways in which people can pay their respects including holding a remembrance service in your garden or creating an online book of remembrance. Visit the RBL website for details.
