REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY in Lynemouth was very different this year due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic, Remembrance Sunday The Union flag was flown at full-mast all day. A very short wreath laying ceremony was led by the Chair and Vice-Chairman of the Parish Council at the war memorial outside Lynemouth Institute on Bridge Road on Sunday 8th November 2020 at 11.00 a.m. with the two-minute silence, just for invited representatives from those organisations which traditionally lay a wreath at the war memorial, e.g. the Royal Observer Corps Association, Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC), and a representative of the Tri-Services, to keep the outdoor event small. Other members of the public who wished to lay a tribute could do so throughout the day whilst adhering to national and local government restrictions and observing social distancing at all times.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
