Unfortunately this year the Remembrance Celebrations can not be the same as in previous years. The Parish Council has always arranged for suitable Road Traffic Orders to be in place for both Remembrance Sunday and for the 11th November should this not be a Sunday. Sadly this year the County Council and the Staffordshire Police aren’t granting Road Traffic Orders and so there can not be the usual mass gathering of all of us who would like to pay our respects. Whilst we wouldn’t want to deter anyone paying their respect we do ask that everyone exercises caution.
A notice has been issued to the community informing us all that there will be no service as such because of the Covid regulations. The bugler will be there for the two minute silence. Mike Tarbuck will do the lament and John Smith will read out the names. The Chairman of the Parish Council, Councillor Garry Hyde, will also lay a wreath and pay his respects on behalf of the Council. If people wish to lay wreaths they may do so at any time. This will all take place on the footpath in front of the memorial.
