Covering the villages of Wilsden and Harecroft

 

Remembrance Sunday was commemorated in a different way this year due to the restrictions imposed by Covid-19. There was no service at the cenotaph although a pre-recorded service was available on Wilsden Residents Facebook.

Wreaths were laid individually; the two photographs show the Chair of the Council, Peter Ketley laying the parish council wreath on behalf  of the residents of Wilsden and Harecroft and Mrs Linda Booth placing a cross on behalf of the War Widows.

 Let us hope that next year we will be able to observe Remembrance Sunday together.

 Cllr Peter Ketley

There will be a Police Surgery at Wilsden Village Hall on Saturday 31st October 10:30am - 12pm. Please pop along for any crime prevention advice and to discuss any concerns with your local PCSO.

 

This year we will be following national and local guidelines and there will be no traditional Remembrance Service at the cenotaph on Sunday 8th November.

 Instead we invite you to join in a two minute silence at 11am on your doorstep or in your garden.

The clergy of the two churches in Wilsden are preparing a virtual service and further details of how to join this will be available shortly.

We hope that as many of you as possible will create tributes in the windows of your homes and businesses.

Anyone wishing to lay a wreath, or place a poppy next to the cenotaph is invited to do so at their leisure between Friday 6th November and Thursday 12th November, observing social distancing.

 “We will remember them”
