Unlike previous years, the traditional Civic Service of Remembrance at the village war memorial will sadly not go ahead this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, Councillors in Burbage understand that residents still want to pay their respects, which is why they are considering ways for them to do that will safely benefit those in the community.

Remembering from home

Parishioners are being encouraged to commemorate those who served with dignity and respect safely with family members from their own homes.

The Parish Council have invited those village residents to put pictures of poppies in their windows as a sign of respect to support the occasion and respect the fallen.

Virtual Remembrance service

It is being hoped that a virtual Remembrance service will be broadcast on Sunday 8 November.

If the virtual service does successfully go ahead, the video will be available to view online through the Council’s official website, to ensure residents can keep themselves and the wider community safe, and that they can watch the service.
