Remembrance Day 2020

Marking Remembrance Sunday in Rothley

Marking Remembrance Sunday in Rothley Sunday 8th November 2020

Guidance has been received that Remembrance Day ceremonies this year should not take place in the normal way that communities do each year up and down the land. Therefore this year there will be no public ceremony at Cross Green. Instead at 11.00am on Sunday 8th November the leader of the Parish Council and a representative of the County Council will meet with the Vicar to lay a wreath at the Memorial in a very short ceremony. The uniformed organisations will not be attending and we have been requested to ask the public to mark Remembrance in their own homes. This is a very difficult request to ask of our community who wish to express their gratitude for those who have fallen in the service of our nation but we are sure you fully understand why this has been necessary for this year.

In order to support the community in marking Remembrance in their own homes, an online service from the Parish Church with an Act of Remembrance is published below on and is also accessible on the Rothley Church YouTube Channel. This features the memorial that was commissioned by the villagers who lost loved ones in the First World War together with music from the organ which was donated in their memory, and we hope many of you will be able to watch that in your homes. You may also want to visit our Centenary of the Armistice web page about the commemorative events in 2018.

Webcast @ 1030am: Rotlhley Remembrance Sunday online service led by David Wilson with sermon from Revd Rob Gladstone on ‘The Rule of Christ' from Isaiah 40.12-31
