This year Remembrance Sunday falls on the 8th November while the country will be in the second Lock-down. No more than two people can meet outdoors and so we will adapt our Act of Remembrance to fit into the current rules.
Please do not congregate at the village green at 11am where Bill and Alison Stevens will lay a wreath at the war memorial on behalf of the village.
Instead, we ask everyone who wants to take part in the Act of Remembrance to stand on their doorstep or in their gateway, just before 11am this Sunday.
At 11am precisely, the Last Post will be sounded over a public address system, that will hopefully be heard all around the village.
A two minute silence will be followed by sounding the Reveille.
The full Act of Remembrance for North Perrot is printed below:
Let us remember with gratitude those who, in the cause of peace and the service of their fellow men, died for their country in time of war, especially those from North Perrott:
G.Bishop, H.Dabinett, G.C.Elson, J. Osborne, A.G. Saint, J Saint.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning. We will remember them.
All: We will remember them
When you go home, tell them of us,And say that for your tomorrow, we gave our today
Prayer: Almighty and eternal God, from whose love in Christ we cannot be parted, either by death or life: hear our prayers and thanksgivings for all whom we remember this day, fulfill in them the purpose of they love, and bring us all, with them, to thine eternal joy; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
