Remembrance Sunday 2020
Despite the on-going COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation the Remembrance Weekend, planned for November in North Killingholme, was still expected to take place.
However, with the announcement, on 31st October, that England would be going into a second lockdown from 5th November then clearly the plans for Remembrance in North Killingholme have had to be revised. It was understood that church services were not allowed under lockdown, nor meals at hotels, so the Remembrance Day plans were cancelled.
A band of (local) stalwarts planned a simple wreath-laying ceremony and 2 mins silence on Wednesday 11th November at 11am at the Memorial Stone on behalf of the Association.
A number of poppy crosses were available: with the request that if a member wanted a name to be put on a poppy cross and make it part of the proceedings then this cound be achieved by contacting Mike Leeman (email: email@example.com) by the Wednesday.
NB: This was not an invitation to attend, as to do so would have been in non-compliance with the lockdown restrictions.
Thanks to George Turner and Mike Leeman for making the photographs below available.
No ceremony this year and no photos available.
