Remembrance 2020

Remembrance this year has been so different but the whole community has marked both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day in their own different ways.

With no opportunity to parade and pay our respects at the War Memorial, a service of Remembrance was live-streamed from Flitwick Parish Church for people to join in on Remembrance Sunday.

Community groups and organisations were encouraged to lay their wreaths at the War Memorial, covered with the beautiful knitted and  crocheted poppy display,  between Remembrance Sunday to Armistice Day to comply with the current Covid-19 restrictions.

Schools, groups such as the Sea Cadets,and individuals painted stones to lay at the War Memorial and at Flitwick Parish Church.

The Deputy Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Major Simon Sadler and Town Mayor, Jeremy Dann laid wreaths at the War Memorial on Tuesday.

The Flitwick Branch of The Royal British Legion held a short Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial on Armistice Day, observing the two minute silence joined by members of the community.
