Remembrance Sunday ceremonies restricted to the public

Due to restrictions resulting from Covid-19, this year’s Remembrance Sunday will be marked with a series of restricted ceremonies where only invited wreath layers will be taking part.

The Gibraltar Government has said that the limited attendance will be “strictly controlled” by the Royal Gibraltar Police, and reminded the public that they should not attempt to attend any ceremony.

No guests or spectators will be allowed at any event, with potential congregating groups set to be moved away by the RGP.

“The occasion will be marked at the British War Memorial with a short but significant wreath laying event where only invited Wreath Layers shall take part,” the Government said.

“This will be followed by an even further reduced wreath laying event at the American War Memorial.”

“There will be no Act of Worship at either event.”

Invited wreath layers include members from the Table of Precedence and representatives of the Essential Services who will be paying their respects at the Cross of Sacrifice at North Front.

This will be taking places at specifically timed slots in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.
