The pandemic has knocked many, many events out of our calendars this year and the Poppy Appeal is no exception. Sadly, there will be no face-to-face collections which, of course, means that the normal Waitrose Collection will not take place. The Northwood Remembrance Sunday Parade on Sunday 8th November 2020 IS CANCELLED.
The Poppy Appeal is making arrangements directly with supermarkets for donations at check-outs. Also, Northwood Residents’ Association has suggested, and the RBL has agreed, to set up a Just Giving page for the Northwood 2020 Poppy Appeal. Visit the page here.
Please do tell friends and family about the Just Giving page and encourage them to donate via this method.
Due to current and ongoing Covid-19 restrictions on large gatherings, the Northwood Remembrance Sunday Parade on Sunday 8th November 2020 is cancelled.
This decision has been agreed with LBH, Ruislip and Northwood Royal British Legion, Northwood Residents’ Association and those involved in organising the Northwood Remembrance Parades.
Wreaths and crosses should not be laid at the Memorial on Remembrance Sunday and preferably be laid before. The wreath laying should only be by individuals, as in the usual Parade, as a Covid-compliant, unadvertised low-key activity, without parading, marching, ceremony, music or other behaviour which might attract numbers of the public.
Wreaths and crosses are available for those organisations and individuals who normally lay them at the Memorial – please contact Chris Boultbee email@example.com
