Remembrance & Armistice Day 2020

Due to the risks involved with the Coronavirus and the most recent Government announcement, there will be no annual public commemoration held at the Hull Bridge Memorial this year.  Following social distancing guidelines, Parish Council representatives will lay a wreath on behalf of the community at Hull Bridge. The Silent Soldiers will be displayed at the War Memorial from the 2 November until 16 November 2020. 

Whilst we acknowledge that this will be disappointing, the Parish Council’s main priority is the safety of residents and to protect the health and well-being of the wider community. 

Despite the changes this year, the Royal British Legion is encouraging people across the nations to ensure Remembrance Sunday is still marked appropriately by taking part in remote and socially distanced Remembrance activities, whether that be watching the service on television or pausing for the Two Minute Silence in their home or on their doorsteps.

Each year East Riding of Yorkshire Council organises a Remembrance Service and Parade in Beverley on Remembrance Sunday at which we pay our respects and remember those who gave so much so that we may enjoy the freedoms we do today.  

Sadly, due to the current Coronavirus restrictions this year’s event was cancelled. 

However, East Riding of Yorkshire Council together with Beverley Minster have put together a pre-recorded Remembrance event and we invite you to join us on Sunday, 8th November 2020 at 10.50am.

The pre-recorded event can be access via East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Facebook page or by clicking the YouTube link
