Remembrance Sunday is often a difficult day for many families with still vivid memories of what loved ones endured in service of our nation. The pain is likely to be more acute than ever this year with events around the country being severely restricted by government guidelines regarding Covid-19.
At Dunsfold Church we want to provide a safe environment so we will have to limit numbers who attend our Remembrance Service. That’s why we need all who wish to attend the 9.30am Remembrance Day service next week to register their requests by emailing [email protected] or calling Reverend Ian Maslin on 200048.
Please tell him how many places you require (maximum six) and he will confirm your bookings. The registrations will be on a first come first served basis.
The national guidelines also request that there is no major assembly of people at the Dunsfold War Memorial. The Royal British Legion (RBL) ask people to respect social distancing rules and will not be requesting the closure of any roads.
There will still be the national minute’s silence at 11 am and the RBL support the request that families and households stand on their doorstep to publicly share this moment.
