THE Royal British Legion is urging Barnsley folk to take a two minute silence on their doorsteps to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.

 

As the country was forced into a second lockdown, Remembrance events and parades were cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. 

 

Despite this, the Royal British Legion wants people across the borough to remember the fallen soldiers who fought for our country.

 

At 11am tomorrow, November 8, people are asked to stand on their doorsteps and have a two-minute silence.

 

A spokesperson for Royal British Legion said: “Despite the changes this year, we are encouraging people across the nation to ensure Remembrance Sunday is still marked appropriately by taking part in remote and socially distanced Remembrance activity.

 

“Whether that be watching the service on television or pausing for the two minute silence in their home or on their doorsteps.”
