News Respect and Remember at home

In light of current government restrictions and social distancing guidelines a small but respectful Remembrance Service will be held at the Cenotaph in Brenchley Gardens, Maidstone, on the morning of Sunday 8 November 2020.

The service will be limited to six people which will include the Mayor of Maidstone Marion Ring, representatives of 36 Engineer Regiment, a bugler, and the Minister leading the service.

The event will be live streamed on Maidstone Borough Council’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/maidstoneboroughcouncil to encourage people to respect and remember at home this year to protect their health and well-being whilst Coronavirus is still present.

Geraldine Brown, Chairman of Maidstone’s Kent Association of Local Councils said:

“We are asking people to stay at home and instead to come out onto their doorsteps for the two minute silence at 11am to show their respect. Please do not go to a war memorial at this time, we want everyone to stay safe. It will be a different and respectful way to commemorate our war heroes this year.”

People are welcome to lay a wreath at the war memorial in the Broadway at any time prior to Remembrance Sunday.
