Remembrance Sunday & Armistice Day Commemoration 2020

Covid regulations prevented the traditional Eastcote Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service to be held this year. A Remembrance Sunday Service was video streamed from St Lawrence Church.

Last minute changes to the Covid regulations concerning outdoor public gatherings allowed a short socially distanced Armistice Day Commemorative Ceremony, organised by the Eastcote Branch of The Royal British Legion, to be   held at Eastcote War Memorial, Field End Road at 11.00 am on 11th November.

The Ceremony was led by Mrs Catherine Dann, Branch President. The traditional Last Post, Two Minute Silence and Reveille was sounded by Mr Christopher White. The blessing was given by Fr John Seymour. Wreaths and other Remembrance items were laid by individuals and representatives of local organisations. Mr David Simmonds MP and other local dignitaries attended.

The Chair of ERA laid a wreath on behalf of Eastcote residents on Saturday 7th November.
