Remembering the Fallen at Beaulieu War Memorial
(1) Remembrance Sunday (November 8) Memorial Service
(2) Remembrance Day (November 11) at 10.50 am
(1) As a result of the recently announced government lockdown, the planned 'open-air' Remembrance Service on Sunday around the Beaulieu War Memorial on Sunday next, November 8, will not now take place.
Traditionally, the collection taken is for the work of the Royal British Legion. Although this cannot now be made on Sunday, nevertheless donations are still most welcome. Mr Robert Gayner, who organises the Collection each year, will be happy to receive these. It would be helpful to receive it via an evelope clearly labelled 'Royal British Legion' collection.
(2) As the government now allows open air services for special commemorative events, Fr John has planned a short service at Beaulieu War Memorial, on Remembrance Day, Wednesday November 11. It will include the laying of wreaths by representatives from the local community and the observance of the Two Minute silence. All members of the Beaulieu community are warmly invited to attend this service, but strict compliance with social distancing, wearing of masks and avoidance of singing will be required.
Please also note that cars will NOT be permitted on Church Meadow, so all those attending this service are encouraged to walk to the War Memorial. Only those actively participating in the service will be within the Churchyard. All others must observe from the Church Meadow area.
Further details will be posted to this page as they become available
