Remembering - a scene from last year's event in Clacton

District to hold virtual Remembrance Sunday event

A virtual event is being organised to mark Remembrance Sunday in Tendring district this year.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, it is not possible to organise a parade so Tendring District Council is working with the Clacton branch of the Royal British Legion to commemorate Remembrance Day online.

Community groups which would usually take part in the parade are being invited to be involved in a video event by recording messages that exploring what Remembrance Day means to them.

“Although disappointing that we cannot hold our usual parade to commemorate the sacrifice made by so many during conflicts over the years, I know our virtual events for VE Day and VJ Day proved a very popular and fitting way to pay our respects in these unusual times,” said TDC chairman Dan Land said. “We hope to deliver an appropriate service again for Remembrance Day."

Dan Casey, President of the Clacton Royal British Legion Branch, added: “We’re looking forward to commemorating Remembrance Day in a different way, and hope that lots of people get involved in this safe, Covid-secure way.”

Groups that would like to be involved in the virtual ceremony should email [email protected] with contact details.
