St. Clare’s held a meeting with the town council in September, and this is what was decided:

“It was felt that the event this year will need to be greatly reduced to ensure safety of the public and participants. Therefore it has been proposed that the ‘March / Parade’ be cancelled and only a short outside wreath laying Service take place at the War Memorial outside of St. Clare’s Church. It is proposed that wreath laying be limited to keep within the guidelines for safety during the Covid-19 situation.

Other organisations and members of the public, who usually lay a wreath, are encouraged to lay their wreath on the War Memorial at their leisure on the afternoon of Sunday 8th November, thereby allowing for the two metre social distancing to be observed at 11am. The Service will be streamed over the Parish Facebook page.”

There will also be a short service at St. Andrew’s in the afternoon at 3.00pm. As of Thursday 5th November, all services in the church building’s, apart from funerals, have been suspended for the period of the lockdown.


Due to the latest government lock down restrictions we will be cancelling the Remembrance Service at Neville Parade Methodist Church on Sunday 8th November.

The church will be closed till further notice.

Take care and stay safe.


The Xcel Church will have an online Service on Sunday morning, going live from 10.30am and observing the two minute silence at 11.00am. The online Service can be watched by logging into
