SUNDAY 8th NOVEMBER
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Pandemic we are unable to proceed with the traditional Remembrance Parade and Service that is so well attended by the Uniformed Youth Groups in the village and the general public.
It is one of the events during the year that brings the village community together and a time for us all to pause during our busy lives and reflect and remember.
As it is such a special event, we don't want to cancel it so instead we will be bringing you a live broadcast. You will be able to watch the Act of Remembrance and a presentation by the Scouts and Guides. The theme of their presentation this year is 'Sacrifice'. Something all of us may be able to relate to after the events of 2020?
To watch the live broadcast, please visit this page on Sunday 8th November or alternatively visit youtube.com/silverendscouts If you subscribe and click the Bell Icon (🔔) you will be notified when the broadcast starts. The broadcast will begin at 10.40am approximately.
For those that parade or come out and see the parade by the village uniformed youth organisations you may recall that they normally have a WWII Ambulance lead the parade. This is done voluntary and they don't ask for anything towards the fuel and upkeep of the vehicle. As they cannot be at any services this year, they are going to be taking part in the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2020 'Move to Remember'.
Along with their mascot 'Albert Bear' they I are aiming to visit 11 war memorials each day for 11 days in the run-up to Armistice Day.
Albert Bear will have a photo taken at each memorial, some of the memorials that are listed at the Imperial War Museum War Memorials Register have no photographs and only a register number and location. They hope to be able to photograph some of these and help to update the national register which has approximately 90,000 UK war memorials listed and the names of the individuals they commemorate and raise funds for the Poppy Appeal.
If you would like to donate to the Poppy Appeal this way - just click on Albert Bear.
