Falkirk Council has confirmed its annual commemorative service will only go ahead this year as a “small ceremony” in light of current coronavirus restrictions and guidance.
Members of the public will not be able to attend the event at Falkirk Cenotaph on Sunday, November 8, however, the local authority will share images of proceedings online.
Provost Billy Buchanan said: “In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Act of Remembrance will be different this year.
For your own safety and the safety of others we must follow the Scottish Government Coronavirus Regulations.
“The Level 3 status of Falkirk means that no outdoor events are currently permitted, therefore we will not be holding the normal Remembrance event at the Cenotaph in Falkirk.
“In place of the normal ceremony, I will attend alone and lay a wreath.
“Organisations wishing to pay respect to the fallen can do so by laying wreaths independently over the course of the day following social distancing guidelines, ensuring that no more than six people from two different households are present.
“We would encourage the public to mark the two-minute silence at 11am on November 8 at home.”
