Remembrance ideas for 2020
As a result of Covid-19 restrictions, it may be necessary for individuals and communities to consider new ways of performing Remembrance activities, whether at Remembrancetide or any other time of the year.
To give you a helping hand, we've put together a wide-range of suggested Covid safe activities that are inexpensive to create:
- Hold a small Remembrance service in your garden.
- Create a Remembrance space in your garden by planting plants that have a connection to Remembrance.
- Use Zoom, Facebook or another online meeting resource to host an online Remembrance service or activity.
- Set up a community Remembrance forum to discuss different residents' Remembrance stories.
- Create an online exhibition of Remembrance related photos from local residents that schools or others could use to discuss local Remembrance activities.
- Do an online interview with a local veteran or someone currently serving to discuss what service and sacrifice means to them. You could send people the link and create an online audience.
- Open an online book of Remembrance that family, friends and others can sign as a mark of Remembrance.
- Write letters of Remembrance to veterans or serving personnel.
- Useour Remembrance education activities to help children learn about Remembrance.
- Create your own Remembrance art piece using our teaching resources – children and families could be asked to display something in their window like the rainbows for the NHS.
The Royal British Legion have also have created a virtual field of remembrance where people can virtually plant their Tribute from home, and explore other Tributes made to remember the fallen.
