Councillor Val Clare

Draycott Remembrance Service – cancelled

We have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Remembrance Service at the War Memorial on Sunday 8th November due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.

Reverend Gary Dundas will conduct a very small service that will be recorded by the Parish Council and posted onto Draycott and Church Wilne’s Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/draycottandchurchwilnepc – we will also share this to Draycott Village Fund’s page.  Cllr Val Clare will attend and lay a wreath on behalf of Erewash Borough Council, Cllr Diane Dundas will attend and lay a wreath on behalf of Draycott and Church Wilne Parish Council.

The gate to the War Memorial will be left open throughout the day for any individuals who wish to pay their respects and lay their own wreaths / poppies / crosses etc.

To ensure that we keep you and us safe and comply with the government rules, please do not visit the War Memorial at 11am

We will be putting up the lamp post poppies as a sign of our respect – these will be installed by the beginning of November.
