This year, it will not be possible to have the usual Remembrance Day Service at the Fearnan War Memorial as outdoor gatherings are not permitted due to the pandemic.
Instead, this Sunday morning Taylyon Churches will be broadcasting an act of remembrance which has been pre-recorded at the Fearnan Memorial.
You will be able to find the recording tomorrow morning on the Upper Tay Churches YouTube Channel https://youtu.be/eNnnB0Wi-DU and you can watch it in your own home on your screen or iPad.
The service is led by Shirley Shearer and you should start watching the service at 10.45 if you want to observe the silence at 11.00.
As well as the pre-recording, there will be a laying of wreaths at the Fearnan War Memorial in real time just after the 2-minute silence on Sunday morning, and if you choose to go to the memorial, please do ensure that you observe social distancing of 2 metres.
As we are not gathering together this year, we will not be able to make the usual collection for Help for Heroes. Like so many charities, they have seen their income plummet this year – just at the time that many ex-servicemen are needing additional help to cope with the challenges presented by the pandemic. If you would like to make your usual contribution, please go to https://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/ where you can make an on-line donation.
Many thanks,Dougie,for the beautiful sand sculpture.
