This year in line with government COVID restrictions, during lockdown there will be a short dignified Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in St Michael’s Churchyard, beginning at 10.45 am. The short service will be led by our Rector, Rev Chris Davey and a wreath will be laid on behalf of the whole community by the Chair of Framlingham Town Council, Mr Philip Collins.
Framlingham residents are requested NOT to attend but any who do must adhere to strict Covid guidelines, masks must be worn (Unless medically exempt) and people must stand well back from the war memorial and be socially distanced from those with whom they do not share a household or bubble. Anyone with covid symptoms should not attend. This will allow the service to be Covid secure and protect the safety of townsfolk who the fallen fought so bravely to protect.
Anyone wishing to lay a wreath must do so once the Act of Remembrance is complete and after the Rector and Chair of the Town Council have moved back and away from the War Memorial. Wreath laying must be done with social distancing and extreme care.
It is hoped the service will be broadcast live over St Michael’s Church Facebook page and that the bugler, playing from the top of the church tower, will be audible across large parts of the town.
There will be an online Remembrance Service at 9.30am via Zoom, all are welcome to attend please contact the parish office for the link email@example.com
This decision has been taken following consultation between Framlingham Town Council, St Michaels Church and Framlingham Royal British Legion following Government Guidance.
Please take part in the two minute silence from your own homes - Stay at Home, Stay Safe, Protect Others and Save Lives.
