Update – Remembrance Sunday 8th November 2020

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman announced that Remembrance Sunday events could go ahead but people should remain mindful of the risks such events pose, especially to veterans who are often elderly and social distancing should be maintained at all times.

The Royal British Legion are going ahead with a much smaller ‘socially distanced’ Service of Remembrance on Sunday 8th November at the Memorial in Royal Avenue Gardens where they will be honouring those who fought and lost their lives

Dartmouth Town Council would like to encourage people to ‘remember from home’ rather than coming into town to watch the ceremony in order to protect themselves and others. However if people are attending the service then they should continue to social distance and wear a mask where possible.

There will be a national service at the Cenotaph in London, which will be broadcast on TV.
