Two small services did go ahead
The Royal British Legion and military veterans conducted the Act of Remembrance, both on Sunday, November 8 and Wednesday, November 11 at the Wisbech War Memorial. Wisbech Town Council had informed the general public that there would be no formal Remembrance Parade or Service as in other years due to the Government guidelines and restrictions regarding public events.
Some social media posts suggested the The RBL had cancelled the Remembrance service, which is incorrect. The Town Council is the authorising authority for public events and The RBL are the custodians of the Act of Remembrance, therefore the RBL does not have the authority to conduct a public event or to cancel one.
