Remembrance Sunday: Update on arrangements in Rushcliffe

Rushcliffe Borough Council clarify the arrangements for the borough.


A Rushcliffe Borough Council spokesperson said: “We’re not aware of any larger commemorations taking place across Rushcliffe in line with central government advice outlined on November 3.

“As stated within this guidance, the following people are legally permitted to attend events to commemorate Remembrance Sunday as participants.

• 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

“Rushcliffe councillors are attending wreath laying ceremonies in their communities in line with these guidelines and some have recorded commemorations ahead of Remembrance Sunday. These activities are part of church or community plans and not directly organised by the authority here.


“Those wishing to pay their respects are asked to join the national efforts and recognise this important occasion in a COVID-secure way. Our website provides links to ideas and inspirations from the Royal British Legion for recognising Remembrance Sunday at home this year
