As a mark of respect for our fallen

Wednesday 28th October 10am

On 27 October, Hoddesdon Town Centre's Clock Tower shines bright in a red light in respect for our fallen soliders from the war.

Sadly, due to the pandemic and the risks posed, Remembrance Sunday parade will not be taking place this year. Despite these changes we still encourage people to ensure that Remembrance Sunday is marked by taking part in socially distanced activity.

Please join us for the two minute silence either from your doorstep or your home on Sunday November 8 at 11am.

Service will be aired on television and The National Arboretum said it would mark Remembrance Sunday by broadcasting a "Virtual Act of Remembrance" on Facebook and Youtube.

As well as lighting the Clock Tower in a beautiful poppy red, we have once again created a 'blanket of poppies' in the Royal British Legion Garden of Remembrance at Hoddesdon Parish Church in Amwell Street.

A big thank you to our volunteers helpers - Claire from Morrisons and Abby + Bradley from HB Accountants.
Don't forget to buy your poppy and support the Royal British Legion at this difficult time.

Here's how you can continue to support the poppy appeal: www.rbl.org.uk/poppyappeal as well as donating in your local supermarkets.

This project was funded by Love Hoddesdon in conjunction with Broxbourne Council.
