Please pass this information to anyone who would normally attend our annual Remembrance event.
The Friends deeply regret that in these strange times we are not able to hold our usual Remembrance event as we often have in excess of 100 attendees, which under Covid restrictions would not be allowed.
An alternative arrangement has been agreed, details of which are listed below.
All Brandwood End cemetery gates will remain closed to the public till 11.30am, to allow for a service and the private laying of wreaths at the Cross of Sacrifice. All the usual organisations will be invited. The cemetery gates will then be open to the public from 11.30am (after the service) till-5pm, for anyone wishing to visit family graves or pay their respects at the Cross of Sacrifice.
These arrangements follow discussions with Bereavement Service staff and we agreed on a compromise. We need to protect the public but also acknowledge the importance of the day.
Can we thank you for your understanding and trust that you will all return in 2021, when we hope things will have returned to some normality.
