Remembrance at home
This year we have creatively marked major anniversaries at home and remotely, including this year's VE75 and VJ75 celebrations to mark the importance of our military heritage. From a crowd-sourced veteran video to proclamations of peace; sharing of local family involvement in conflicts to video clips of thanks.
Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday 2020
For Remembrance 2020 we encourage you to take part in the national two-minutes silence at home.
Here are some ideas and resources to help you commemorate this important time:
- Online video messages of remembrance will be shared on our social media channels
- An audio clip of the Last Post and Reveille along with the wording associated with the Act of Remembrance
- Earlier in the year rainbows adorned the windows of homes across the Borough. The Beacon Service and Borough of Bury Veterans Association are encouraging you to display poppy posters in your windows.
- Bury Archives are hoping that people keep the memory of our fallen soldiers alive despite the coronavirus restrictions on Remembrance Day events.
- National activity and resources are available to support the teaching of remembrance.
- Take the virtual tour of the Fusiler Museum.
- As part of Bury's Town of Culture we are keen to hear about the heritage of our local people and communities
- For those who find the remembrance period particularly difficult, the British Legion have a wellbeing helpline.
- Open every day from 8am to 8pm.
- Phone 0808 802 8080.
- Visit the British Legion website for physical and mental wellbeing support.
