Kendal Town Council and Kendal Parish Church have adapted their plans for Remembrance Sunday in response to new Government lockdown measures that will begin on Thursday 5th November.
Remember at Home
The main message they would like to convey is to Remember at Home.
This can be done by watching the national Remembrance Service on television and observing the Two Minute Silence in your home, or on the doorstep at 11am.
Kendal Town Council will post Remembrance footage and photos from Kendal on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
You are welcome to lay wreaths at War Memorials in Kendal anytime throughout the day.
We ask that the times of 10am and 11am are avoided and that care is taken so that people can socially distance from one another.
We also ask that people only attend with their household or support bubble and that the NHS QR poster on a nearby barrier is scanned.
Please do not attend if you are showing any symptoms of Covid-19.
Because of the restrictions on gathering in response to the Pandemic, the Royal British Legion has requested that all parades are cancelled this year.
Remembrance Sunday Service – Via Zoom
As congregations are no longer allowed due to the latest Regulations, a Remembrance Service from Kendal Parish Church will be streamed live, via Zoom from 10.45am. There is an opportunity for up to 100 people to attend through the Zoom platform. If you would like to join, it will be available on a first come, first served basis. The link below gives the details

Remembrance Day, 11th November
We are asking that people pay tribute by Remembering at home or work on Remembrance Day by observing the 2 minutes silence at 11am.
The Mayor of Kendal will lay a wreath at the Market Place Memorial on behalf of the people of Kendal followed by a lone bugler sounding the Last Post, and the 2 minute silence.
The Mayor of Kendal, Cllr Alvin Finch said: “Remembrance this year is just as important as ever, even though we cannot gather together. I hope we will all remember and reflect in our own, deeply personal way.”
