Remembrance Sunday Service

About

Eastbourne’s annual Remembrance Sunday service will be taking place virtually in 2020, to protect residents and military veterans from the Covid-19 pandemic.

With social distancing in mind, the service will now take place at the Town Hall, and will be broadcast to the public online on Sunday 8 November to enable veterans, residents and other representatives to take part virtually.

The service will feature only a small number of representatives and wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial Roundabout in the two weeks leading up to the annual commemoration.

In addition to the virtual service, it is hoped that a colourful trail of poppies throughout the town, displayed in the windows of Eastbourne homes, will bring remembrance to the home, with children encouraged to display their own artistic creations.

Poppy templates can be downloaded on the Royal British Legion website, where we would suggest making a donation to support the brilliant work that they do to help ex-service men and women and their families. Donate and download at www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/ways-to-give/donate

Residents are also being encouraged to observe a two minute doorstep silence at 11am on Remembrance Sunday, to enable communities to come together and observe the poignant moment, in a safe, socially distanced way.

Eastbourne’s Remembrance Sunday service will be broadcast online from 10.45am on Sunday 8 November, with a 2 minute silence at 11am.

Full details of how to view the broadcast will be announced nearer the time, and will be published on www.Lewes-Eastbourne.gov.uk.
