The Town Council, in conjunction with the Falmouth Royal Navy Association, have been planning this year’s Annual Acts of Remembrance. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the Annual Service of Remembrance on Sunday 8th November will be held at the War Memorial in Kimberley Park at 11am for invited guests only. There will be no parade and the number of invited guests will be limited to 30 in line with the current government guidelines. If any members of the public attend the park to observe the Service they are requested to observe social distancing and the current government guidelines of not gathering in groups of more than 6. Should any organisations who are not part of the Civic party or members of the public wish to lay a wreath they will have the opportunity to do so after the Service. It is also hoped to film the Annual Service of Remembrance which will be available to view on the Town Council’s Facebook page.
The First Poppy Laying will be held at the War Memorial in Kimberley Park on Saturday 24th October at 11am which again will be delivered in line with current government guidelines for invited Civic guests.
On the 11th November the Mayor and a small Civic party will meet on the Prince of Wales Pier to observe the two minutes silence.
As with the Annual Service of Remembrance if any members of the public wish to observe the First Poppy Laying or two minutes silence they are requested to observe social distancing and the current government guidelines of not gathering in groups of more than 6.
Should there be any changes to government guidelines which will affect the Annual Services of Remembrance a further press release will be issued.
