Remembrance

People in Rutland are being urged to stay safe and observe Remembrance Sunday at home, in light of new national COVID-19 restrictions.

Rutland Remembers

In the absence of public events to mark this year's Remembrance Sunday, a short Service of Remembrance was recorded with the help of All Saints Church in Oakham, before lockdown began.

Please join us in commemorating Remembrance Sunday safely, at home.

Share you stories

Joining together in a moment of quiet reflection goes right to the heart of the spirit of Remembrance. 

As we mark Remembrance Sunday, we're asking you to share your stories and photos of loved ones who have fought or made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

Anyone who would like to join us in doing this can post their memories on social media with the hashtag #RutlandRemembers and we will proudly share these with our followers on Twitter and Facebook.

Lord-Lieutenant's message of remembrance

The Lord-Lieutenant of Rutland, Dr Sarah Furness, has shared this message of remembrance as we join together and commemorate Remembrance Day at home.

Poppy appeal

COVID-19 has also meant that the Royal British Legion’s 2020 Poppy Appeal has moved online, but families can still get involved by downloading and colouring in a Remembrance Poppy to display in their window as a show of support. This can be found on the Legion's website.
