Felixstowe Town Council, the Felixstowe branch of the Royal British Legion and local clergy jointly arrange Remembrance Services for the town.
Remembrance Day is on Sunday 8th November 2020
Unfortunately due to the Covid 19 virus and Government restrictions the usual church service will not be able to be held. St Johns Church, Orwell Road, Felixstowe will be holding a Sunday service but numbers are very limited.
A small civic party will lay wreaths at the War Memorial at 11am as part of a short Act of Remembrance service. To support the social distancing guidance, organisations are being invited to lay their wreaths in groups of four at allotted time slots between 11.15am – 1pm. The service will be recorded and live-streamed directly on The Royal British Legion – Felixstowe Branch Facebook page for public to view and a digital service sheet will accompany the commemoration.
Armistice Day is on Wednesday 11th November 2020 where there will be a two minute silence at Felixstowe War Memorial. As above, a small civic party will be present to observe the Two Minute Silence on 11th November at 11.00am at the Felixstowe War Memorial to mark the end of the First World War. Please joins us in spirit for this contemplative moment, wherever you may be.
In 2018 Felixstowe held various events to mark the ending of WW1, including a special commemorative event on the evening of Remembrance Day Sunday 11th November with 163 volunteers representing each of Felixstowe’s fallen.
Alan Boyle, from Everything Felixstowe, recorded the event and you can see his remarkable footage on youtube here.
