Barrow, In Remembrance

 

A Commemoration of Armistice Day is set to be held virtually in Barrow this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic and national lockdown.

Normally a parade to the Cenotaph in Barrow Park takes place every year on Remembrance Sunday, followed by a service and wreath laying ceremony.

This year, a video will instead be shown on Barrow Borough Council's YouTube channel featuring scenes from Barrow and the playing of The Last Post and Reveille.

In addition, people are asked to observe the Two Minute Silence from their doorstep.
