The tier 3 Covid restrictions means that at the time of writing we are currently intending to hold remembrance commemorations on Sunday, the 8th of November.
Clearly, we need to follow the national advice we are given, so is intended that each of these commemorations are reduced in scope to enable appropriate social distancing to take place.
In addition, I intend opening Campsall church from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday the 7th of November to enable individuals or small groups (no more than six) to light a candle and spend time in their own act of remembrance and prayer.
Our current planning for the 8th of November is:
Norton 10 am – Act of Remembrance (please stand in socially distanced groups in the Royal Hotel car park)
Campsall Cemetery – 10:20 am – Act of Remembrance (please stand in socially distanced groups on the pavement or in the cemetery.
St Mary Magdalen Church Campsall – 11 am – Service of remembrance – (inside church following guidelines for social distancing)
Burghwallis – 1 pm – Service of Remembrance – this will take place in the park/playing field and social distancing will be observed. Groups and individuals may then lay wreaths afterwards at the Wall Memorial.
All the above arrangements are subject to cancellation or change following government guidance.
