In light of current advice from national and local government on social distancing restrictions due to Covid-19, Horwich Town Council and the Horwich branch of the Royal British Legion have made the decision to cancel this year’s Remembrance Sunday Parade and Remembrance Services at the Loco Works War Memorial and at the Cenotaph at the Gardens of Remembrance on Lever Park Avenue.
It was felt that the practicalities of attempting to organise a system of social distancing would be impossible due to the numbers involved and the resources required and it would not be possible to manage public safety in line with government guidance.
We are advising that anyone who wishes to lay wreaths at the Cenotaph may do so individually over the Remembrance Sunday weekend, taking responsibility for their own safety and follow national and local guidelines when visiting the memorial.
Poppy wreaths can be ordered by contacting Deighan’s Funeral Parlour, Horwich on 01204 694999.
All Council meetings will be held remotely until further notice and this will be reviewed on a regular basis. For further information contact the Town Clerk.
