VIDEO: Show that Cramlington Remembers…
November 2, 2020
Cramlington Town Council is asking residents to display a poppy in their windows this week in the run up to Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, November 11.
The Poppy has become an enduring symbol of respect and each year millions of people across the world wear a poppy to remember those who sacrificed themselves.
Normally, in the days leading up to November 11, poppies can be seen in every corner of Cramlington. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions imposed upon us all this year, we have to find different ways of paying our respects.
The council is asking you to put a poppy in your window or on your door. If you could then take a photo with your family and post it on Cramlington Town Council’s Facebook Page, with the hashtag #CramlingtonRemembers we can share the images with all our followers. Alternatively email it to jane@cramlingtontowncouncil.
Many thanks to pupils from Northburn Primary School for showing us the poppies they coloured in – we hope lots of our residents do the same as you!
The Royal British Legion are also encouraging people to ensure Remembrance Sunday is still marked appropriately, either by watching the service on television or pausing for the Two Minute Silence in their home or on their doorsteps.
They also want to ensure that everyone can still get a poppy so the Poppy Appeal has a link on their Every Poppy Counts website where you can download a picture of a poppy or choose to download an outline of a poppy to colour in. The link can be found HERE
