“Downham & District’s usual arrangements for the 2020 Poppy Appeal have been revised because of Covid 19. In Downham Market, poppies and 2020 metal badges are plentiful and available at either Morrisons or TESCO supermarkets.
Poppies and 2020 metal badges are also available in shops, garages and post offices in the District’s villages.
Anyone wishing to purchase a wreath should phone – 07443 537585.”
Unfortunately, also due to the Covid 19 restrictions, there will be no parade this year. Anyone wishing to lay a wreath or their own token of remembrance must make their own arrangements to attend the War Memorial at whatever time suits their own personal preference. However remember to observe any regulations that may be in force at the time. e.g. 6 people in a group or whatever the figure might at the time.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them. source ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon
