Remembrance Sunday

ABERDEENSHIRE Council is asking residents to make their own personal tribute for Remembrance Sunday this year.

The ongoing global pandemic has brought a change to the way a number of milestones are marked. This means all planned outdoor Remembrance Day events will not be able to take place this year unless they are held within a place of worship.

So this year – on Sunday, November 8 – the local authority is encouraging residents of Aberdeenshire to step onto their doorsteps and mark the national two-minute silence – and place a poppy in a front window to remember the sacrifices of those individuals from across Scotland and the UK, the Commonwealth and our Allied Nations, which ensured the relative peace and freedoms we enjoy today.
