Remembrance Sunday in Marlborough

21st October 2020, 2:31pm | By Dawn Whitehall |

An appeal from the Mayor to join the nation at home this year
It is with great sadness that we have to let you know that under the current COVID restrictions there can be no public ceremonies this year on Remembrance Sunday.
With no road closure in place there will not be space for the public to attend the War Memorial in New Road.  However please be assured that under the “rule of six” we are arranging for a small number of organisations to lay wreaths over an extended period of time to make sure that Marlborough’s fallen and our Armed Forces are honoured on the day. We will make sure photographs of this are available soon after the final wreath has been laid.
In the spring we joined the nation to mark VE Day “together at home” and once again we’re suggesting that our community comes together at home to join the nation and pay our respects by observing the 2-minute silence on Remembrance Sunday, 8 November with a doorstep commemoration.
Our Mayor, Councillor Mark Cooper, is particularly saddened and disappointed that we’ve had to take this decision and has prepared a personal message: https://youtu.be/phF1TpMQCfA
