I am aware that nothing has been said about Remembrance Day. This is usually a big event in our calendar, and I wanted to confirm that we will not be taking part this year.
I have contacted the National President and the National Arboretum, and both confirm that no plans are in place. The National Arboretum is still deciding what to do, but if they hold an event at all it will be much reduced and strictly controlled. We have made no plans for lunch afterwards.
You may all have presumed that we would not be participating, as I did, but I wanted to write to confirm our position. I have informed Lichfield Round Table that we will not be taking part this year.
Let’s hope that next year will be different and we can participate in this very important event, as we usually do.
