Camden commemorates Remembrance Day 2020

Camden Council and its partners will remember everyone who has lost their lives as a result of conflict this Remembrance Day.

Due to the national lockdown, sadly the usual procession and Remembrance Sunday service will not be held and we urge all residents to follow the Government guidelines and stay at home in order to stay safe and stop the spread of Covid-19.

Instead, because we think it is important to properly mark the occasion, a small group of council representatives, including Camden’s Mayor and council leaders, will meet with members of Camden’s armed and emergency services and faith representatives for a very short ceremony in the grounds of St Pancras Church. This will be in line with government and health advice. Camden’s Mayor and Deputy Mayor will also go on to lay wreaths at various locations in the borough.

Meanwhile, the council’s offices at 5 Pancras Square will also be lit in red in a sign of remembrance this weekend.

We encourage any residents who wish to remember to watch the broadcast of the national service from the Cenotaph on the BBC on Remembrance Sunday and follow the government health advice.

Residents can support the Poppy Appeal by visiting the British Legion website.

“At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them”.
