Show your support in a different way this Remembrance Sunday.
Remembrance Sunday is the day that we gather as a community to honour the sacrifices of families in our village during past conflicts. Over the last few years an incredible number of residents and young people have attended the service, filling St Peters far beyond capacity and as a village we should be proud of the respect shown every year.
War like analogies are often used to describe the current pandemic and there’s no doubting the different but very real sacrifices that we are all being asked to make, and in particular those being made by our key workers.
Unfortunately we have to ask residents to make a further sacrifice by not attending the village war memorial this year.
Act of Remembrance
In keeping with restrictions on social activity there will be no parade or public act of remembrance this year.
Following guidance from Nottinghamshire Police a representative from the Royal British Legion, Tollerton Parish Council and the Youth Uniformed Groups will gather for a strictly limited, socially distanced act of remembrance.
We hope to be able to record or broadcast this online on the Parish Council Facebook page from around 10.50am.
Please note that a full road closure will be in place on Tollerton Lane between Medina Drive and Tollerton Hall for a short period between 10.45-11.15am. There will be no through route between these times and drivers will be asked to wait or use an alternative route along the A52.
Join in at Home
We invite all residents to join us in Remembrance by observing a two minute silence from their own home, but respectfully request that you please do not gather at or near to the War Memorial.
You can also show your support with a Poppy Poster.
Thank you for your support and understanding
