Remembrance Sunday 2020
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and in light of the risks posed, the Annual Atherstone Remembrance Parade could not take place this year.
This was deeply disappointing for all who proudly take part year after year and it is not a step that has been taken lightly but in line with Government guidelines based on expert advice to protect the health and well-being of everyone who would have participated in the event.
We are however delighted to be able to share some photos and with you that were taken socially distanced courtesy of Graham Beale Photography and two videos kindly shared with us by the Stone Channel.
Our Mayor Cllr Denise Clews laid a wreath on behalf of the Town Council and Cllr Ray Jarvis as NWBC Deputy Mayor on behalf of North Warwickshire Borough Council, plus Craig Tracey MP and Karen Tracey, Rev Michael Brandsma the Vicar of St Marys Church, Eddie Stephenson on behalf of North Warwickshire First Responders, Cllr Gary Chamberlain Chairman of Atherstone Partnership (all whilst observing social distancing and Covid protocols) and we also had a wonderful Bugler.
