UPDATE: Arrangements for Remembrance Weekend


Further to the update on 27th October regarding Remembrance Weekend arrangements, unfortunately due to the new lockdown, the poppy cross ceremony at the war graves on Saturday 7th November has been cancelled.

Whilst the Service of Remembrance due to be held at the War Memorial has also been cancelled, Rev’d David Glover will be holding a virtual Act of Remembrance from the Abbey, and for the town, at 10.45am on Sunday 8th November.

As part of the service we will keep silence at 11:00am and remember those who gave their lives from this town and region.

The Mayor and Vice Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland will still lay wreaths at 11.00am on Sunday, and representatives of the Armed Forces and other wreath layers are being asked to socially distance and lay wreaths later on Sunday or at any time up to 11.00am on 11th November.
