Further to latest government guidance. and following a COVID risk assessment, the parish council will be holding a wreath laying service on Remembrance Sunday at the war memorial in St Stephen Churchtown cemetery.
At 10.55am Rev Emma Childs will say a few words prior to 2 minutes silence at 11am. Following this, Cllr Dave Simpson will lay a wreath on behalf of St Stephen in Brannel Parish Council and it’s residents, Cllr Mike McLening on behalf of Cornwall Council and Cllr Barry Davey on behalf of Devon & Cornwall police.
The war memorial will be sectioned off and only the aforementioned people will be allowed access during this time. The parish council encourage residents to observe the second minute silence from home as the public can only observe the event with their own household or those in their support bubble, or individually with one other person from outside their household. Residents who do attend can only observe from outside the sectioned area and must adhere to social distancing restrictions as detailed in the link below – QR posters will be displayed to comply with track and trace requirements.
Cllr Dave Simpson will then travel to the war memorial in Nanpean to lay a second wreath.
