Remebrance Day to 
be streamed online

Due to the pandemic and the risk of spreading the virus, The Lisburn Branch of the Royal British Legion have had to make the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s Remembrance Day service.

Originally planned for November 8. the committee decided that, due to the new NI Executive rules and the Royal British Legion’s own guideline, the large scale parade and service could not go ahead.

Chairman of the Lisburn branch of the Royal British Legion, Mr Brian Sloan explained: “We are planning to hold a small wreath laying service at the War Memorial and carry out an Act of Remembrance at 11am on November 8, which will be live streamed to cover both Lisburn and Hillsborough,thanks to the Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council.

“We would ask the good people of Lisburn not to congregate at the War Memorial, instead remember our fallen by carrying out a two minute silence in your homes, on your doorsteps, or in your gardens at 11am on November 8 to honour all our fallen.

“These actions will help to keep us all safe. We will remember them.”
