A town council is encouraging people to remember at home this year in line with national lockdown restrictions.
Following the additional restrictions imposed by the government, Swaffham Town Council are standing back from Remembrance Sunday arrangements.
There will be no parade this year and a previous agreed scaled down event is now cancelled altogether.
The mayor Jill Skinner said: “It is very sad this year that the Remembrance events have had to be cancelled, but this does not mean that we won’t remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
You may also want to watch:
“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Please for this year stay safe everyone, remember at home.”
The church are also unable to host a service of remembrance.
