Information received from The National Memorial Arboretum
This year on Remembrance Sunday, we will be broadcasting a virtual Act of Remembrance from the Armed Forces Memorial on Facebook and YouTube. This allows as many people as possible to join us as we all remember everyone who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our freedom.
Visitors who pre-book for the morning of 8 November will have the option of watching the Act of Remembrance in person from the base of the Armed Forces Memorial. Please remember, due to Covid-19, the National Memorial Arboretum remains open only to pre-booked visitors for the foreseeable future.
Information from the Trustees
The Trustees have also been informed that there should be no more than six people around any one memorial. So I would ask you to please not just turn up on the day as you will be turned away. You must go onto the NMA website and book your car parking spot.
Sharon Morris-Mee, who is one of our newest Trustees, will be laying the wreath on behalf of COFEPOW, so if you do go, please join her at the Lychgate after the service, when others will go up to the Armed Forces Memorial to lay their wreaths. https://www.thenma.org.uk/what's-on/events-exhibitions-and-talks/events/remembrance-sunday-and-armistice-day
Additional Information for Armistice Day on Wednesday 11 November
As in previous years, our Armistice Day service on 11 November will be a private service, open to invited guests only. A limited number of tickets will be available to NMA Friends via a ballot (details will be sent directly to members). This service will also be broadcast for the first time on Facebook and YouTube, giving more people than ever before the opportunity to join us as we pay tribute to those killed during the First World War”
