A town council has created a virtual Remembrance Service that will be streamed online so people can pay their respects to the fallen.
With the annual Remembrance Sunday parade and service in Lowestoft having to be suspended this weekend due to Covid-19, Lowestoft Town Council and locals came together on Tuesday to produce a shortened service that remembers all the men and women who fought to protect our country.
The service, filmed by Joshua Freemantle, will be streamed on the town council’s YouTube and Facebook pages at 10.45am on November 8, with words from the mayor of Lowestoft, Alan Green, Royal British Legion chairman Phil Turner and poem readings from Ormiston Denes Academy students.
The Mayor asks: “that you observe the rules, stay safe, stay well and do all you can to protect our community the brave and selfless people of Lowestoft fought so hard to protect for you”.
A short commemorative film, ‘Lest We Forget’, will also premiere on these platforms.
