Armistice Day will be marked at North Walsham War Memorial Hospital this year despite the new lockdown – but with a small, strictly private, ceremony to meet government rules.
Just six people will attend the annual November 11 event, which remembers the 99 men from the town and further 80 from surrounding villages – who gave their lives in the First World War.
Under the latest restrictions only a handful of church, Royal British Legion and Friends representatives can attend – so we are asking other regular visitors and members of the public to please stay away this year.
Friends chairman Keith Jarvis said: “It is important the wreath laying goes ahead in honour of the fallen heroes our hospital is dedicated to. But we need to ensure the tradition is carried out within the current Covid guidance for everyone’s safety – and we look forward to welcoming bigger crowds back next year.”
