Remembrance Sunday 8th November 2020

Royal Leamington Spa’s Remembrance Sunday service is being cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.

It is with great regret that due to the imminent country wide lockdown, Royal Leamington Spa Town Council, in consultation with partners, have taken the decision to cancel the Memorial Wreath laying for Remembrance Sunday on 8th November.

We are encouraging the public to observe the 2 minute silence from home on their doorstep to keep safe whilst honouring those who died fighting for us all.

The Mayor of Royal Leamington Spa Cllr Susan Rasmussen said: "The Leamington Town Council, in consultation with partners, have made the tough decision to cancel this year's Remembrance Sunday service due to the ongoing pandemic.

"We realise that this is disappointing, but our priority at this time must be to keep people safe in their home environment.

"We are encouraging people to take part in the two-minute doorstep silence to recognise all those who served and sacrificed, from the safety of their homes.”

If you do still intend to lay a wreath, please ensure you comply with social distancing rules and keep safe.
