Serving the people of Stroud to create a thriving, sustainable community

Remembrance 2020

Stroud's service to remember those who sacrificed their lives for the country will not happen this year due to the lockdown.

Stroud Town Council had hoped to hold a small private service on Sunday November 8th at the Cenotaph in Park Gardens.

That plan has been cancelled due to the announcement of a second lockdown.

"We know many of you will be very disappointed about this, but as infection rates rise in the Stroud area, we must all do our bit to make sure that we get on top of this awful situation," said Town Mayor Kevin Cranston.

The Mayor will make a personal visit to lay a wreath on Sunday on behalf of everyone who would otherwise have been there, as part of his daily exercise.

"The most important thing is that we take time to remember those who sacrificed so much for our country. I would urge everyone to take time at home on Sunday to reflect and pay tribute to those who we owe so much."
