With planned events marking Remembrance Day cancelled in Bridlington and around the area, Mayor Liam Dealtry is urging residents to pay tribute from their own doorsteps.
Mayor Dealtry is asking residents and those living in the area to stand silent for two minutes at 11.am on Sunday 8th November. At 11.02 he is urging people to join in a two-minute applause to commemorate the annual event.
“Bridlington Town Council have organised the hugely popular Remembrance Sunday programme in years gone by along with local service organisations. The grand parade and poignant service at the War Memorial on Prospect Street normally attracts thousands of people.”Said Liam.
This year, due to the pandemic, organised events that attract crowds of people have been cancelled due to social distancing rules and the risk of spreading infection.
“This is a great way to safely pay your respects from the comfort of your own home. It would be brilliant if the whole area got behind this tribute to show the fantastic community spirit within the town and beyond.” added Liam.
