Remembrance Day restrictions

Major outdoor commemoration events planned for this Remembrance Sunday have been cancelled following recent restrictions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

The Government ruling that outdoor mass gatherings should not take place where social distancing cannot be maintained between different households means that the annual ceremonies and parades – which can see thousands of people gather to pay their respects – cannot take place as they usually would this year.  Residents are instead being asked to pay their respects from their homes.

Councillor and Local Mayor Liam Dealtry has said:

“It is a real shame that Bridlington are unable to go ahead with outdoor Remembrance commemoration events this year.  But our priority must be to ensure people’s safety and adhere to restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

We are urging residents to pay tribute from their own doorsteps.”

He is also asking residents and those living in the area to stand silent for two minutes at 11am on Sunday 8th November. Then at 11.02 he is urging people to continue their tribute with a 2 minute applause to commemorate the annual event.

“While Remembrance Day 2020 will be different, the sense of pride, respect and emotion will be as strong as ever as we remember the lives lost to conflict over many generations.”
