Although Burbage Parish Council will not be holding a Civic Service of Remembrance this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Councillors realise that residents will still want to mark the occasion, and are considering arrangements to allow people to do so safely, for the benefit of the whole community.

Parishioners are being encouraged to commemorate those who served, with dignity and respect, from their own homes, in their hearts or safely with loved ones, rather than gathering at the village War Memorial.

A video Remembrance service will be broadcast on Sunday 8th November 2020 and made available to view online from 10.40am via the Council's website, allowing people to participate wherever they are keeping themselves safe, while ensuring the wellbeing of the wider community.

Residents of all ages are also being invited to put pictures of poppies in their windows as a sign of respect for the fallen and support for the occasion.

The Council has produced a set of black-and-white images, ready for colouring-in, featuring lines from Robert Laurence Binyon's famous poem 'For the Fallen', along with a single image bearing the words 'Lest We Forget', which can be downloaded and printed from the attachments below.
