Your Lib Dem team have been working with the Royal British Legion and the Council to make sure that this Remembrance Day can be marked in a Covid secure way, as well as putting up the street poppies around our area.
Below is the advice from the council on remembrance this year.
This year, Remembrance Sunday (Sunday 8 November) will be commemorated in different ways than usual in Stockport, because of the coronavirus pandemic. By working in partnership with the Armed Forces community we want to ensure that everyone is able to reflect and remember safely.
Stockport residents are being encouraged to pay their respects at home on Remembrance Sunday in line with national guidance. On Sunday 8 November, a private civic commemoration will take place – this event will be filmed and shared live on the Council’s website. There will be no public events taking place at War Memorials and Cenotaphs on Remembrance Sunday or Armistice Day (Wednesday 11 November) in Stockport.
By working in partnership with the Armed Forces community we want to ensure that everyone is able to reflect and remember safely.
Ways this can be done include:
• Take part in the ‘Two Minute Doorstep Remembrance’ at 11am on Sunday 8 November, which allows the nation to come together to remember those who gave their lives in the ultimate sacrifice.
• Leave a message or tribute on our online book of commemoration here
• Get ideas on how to put together an online exhibition of Remembrance or set up a Remembrance space in a garden, as well as much more, by visiting the Royal British Legion website
• Share photos, videos, stories and artwork of commemorating Remembrance 2020 from your home. Please use the hashtag #SKRemembers in your social media messages.
