Unfortunately, following the new lock down from 5th November, churches are no longer able to hold services in church.   There will however be a pre-recorded Remembrance Service on YouTube on Sunday 8th November live from 10.50 am which you can locate from the following link:  https://youtu.be/GyP33tf8QxQ 

There will also be a link to the service via the LCA Facebook page.

On Remembrance Day, Wednesday 11th November at 10.50 am

There will be a wreath laying ceremony and two minutes silence will be observed at the Longparish Memorial Cross in the cemetery.

We encourage all Longparish to come out on to their doorsteps to observe the two minutes silence at 11.00am on Wednesday 11th November.

Following Government Guidelines the numbers attending the wreath laying ceremony have to be kept to a minimum. For the avoidance of doubt, the following people are legally permitted to attend events to commemorate Armistice Day as participants. Attendees should observe social distancing at all times:

  • people attending as part of their work (such as local councillors, local faith leaders, the local MP)
  • people attending in a voluntary capacity on behalf of a recognised organisation
  • members of the armed forces
  • veterans of the armed forces, and/or their representatives or carers

Members of the public are legally permitted to stop and watch the event as spectators, and we ask that you spread out as directed in your household group or support bubble and observe social distancing rules at all times.

We will need to record your name for track and trace.

Anyone attending who would like to lay a wreath or a cross in remembrance please could you let Christian Dryden know on 01264 720398.

We are also asked to remind you, either as a participant or a spectator, that you should not attend if you or anyone in your household has symptoms that could be Covid 19.
