Wreath Laying - Remembrance Sunday

Sun 08 November 2020 to Wed 11 November 2020

At Rose Hill War Memorial

This event has been removed from sale until further notice.

Every year the council hosts an event outside the Town Hall for Remembrance Day; however due to the restrictions on public gatherings that are currently in place, the event will take a different format this November.

Pre-bookable timeslots are available for those wishing to lay a wreath on Sunday 8 and Wednesday 11 November at the war memorial. Please read the section titled ticket information before booking.

On Sunday 8 November 2020 at 2.30pm, the council will be holding an outdoor Service of Remembrance at the Rose Hill War Memorial for invited guests only, which will be conducted by Reverend Patrick Coleman from the Parish Church. This will be followed by a short wreath laying ceremony for invited guests to take part in. Members of the public who try to attend this event will be asked to leave.

Unlike previous years, this year’s event will not be open to the general public. The council encourages members of the general public to stay safe at home this year, and instead join us virtually via a livestream that will be available on the day.

Members of the public will be able to watch the proceedings from their own homes via a livestream and the link for this will be posted on the council’s website and promoted across the council’s social media pages.
