Salford residents are being asked to keep up the fight against COVID-19 as the nation marks Remembrance Sunday this weekend.
The Royal British Legion and Salford City Council will live stream a short service of remembrance and wreath laying from 10.50am on Sunday 8 November via the council’s website.
The Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Charlie McIntyre, who asked residents to remember at home this year because of the pandemic said tributes would always be welcome at cenotaphs but urged people to stay safe.
“I know some people will want to go and quietly pay their respects as they do every year. All I would ask is that they remember we are fighting COVID-19 and are now under strict national restrictions to get the infection rate down,” he said.
“Please only go with your household or support bubble or meet one other person at the cenotaph but keep two metres apart from them or anyone else in attendance. We can still remember those who served and fell respectfully but safely without risking further spread of the virus.”
