RESIDENTS are being urged to log in to Solihull’s Remembrance Sunday service again this year due to Covid-19.
Solihull Council said the service at St Alphege Church War Memorial this Sunday, November 14, is for invited participants only and it will be live streamed for Silhillians wishing to pay their respects safely.
Led by The Reverend Canon Andrew Hutchinson, this year’s service will include the traditional two-minute silence and the laying of wreaths at the memorial.
The council has asked representatives attending on behalf of the local community and military organisations to reduce their numbers to enable social distancing.
It is also putting in place other measures to make the event as Covid secure as possible.
These measures also include live-streaming the service so residents can still pay their respects and watch the service from the safety of their own homes.
The service will be shown on the Council’s YouTube channel and live coverage will be available from approximately 10.30am on the day and saved on the channel for those who want to watch it a later time.
This year also marks the centenary of the installation of the war memorial in 1921 in Solihull.
It is also the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion, which provides valuable support to veterans, their families and those still serving in the armed forces.
