Remembrance Sunday set to be very different to previous years

In a normal year, hundreds of people would gather across the Borough to watch parades and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country during conflict.

This year, the on-going coronavirus pandemic has forced councils across the region to change their plans, with events and parades either cancelled or changed to follow coronavirus guidance.

Commenting Independent William McCandless said “Like many of you I am sure, this is the first time in my living memory I will not be at Coleraine Cenotaph or attending an act of remembrance service at church.

“The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has forced Councils throughout the U.K. to change their plans with events and parades being cancelled and severe restrictions placed upon numbers permitted to attend.

“Although we cannot come together physically as usual please still observe the two minute silence in your home, on your doorstep or whilst out walking with your family – and wear your poppy with pride!

“Earlier this year we marked the the 75th anniversary of the end of the second WW and it is still just as important this year as in previous years to remember all those who sacrificed their lives in both World Wars, ongoing conflicts since then and for the Armed Forces and Security Force personnel who were murdered by terrorists in “ The Troubles “ in Northern Ireland.

“This year on 11th November marks the centenary of the burial of The Unknown Warrior and to mark that milestone I recommend you listen to the Military Wives Choir and their version of ‘Abide With Me.’

A fitting tribute to our fallen heroes – Lest We Forget.”
