Oakengates' Remembrance event cancelled

Oakengates' Remembrance Sunday commemoration at the Poppy Cross in Hartshill Park has been cancelled because of the coronavirus crisis.

Moira Wallace, secretary of Oakengates and district branch of the Royal British Legion, said: "Members of the public and other community partners are very welcome to lay their wreaths at the Poppy Cross at any time convenient to themselves.

"The Royal British Legion Oakengates branch pre-recorded a modified virtual service earlier in October and this will be available to view on YouTube.

"Communities are also being encouraged to stand on their doorsteps at 11am on Sunday and hold their own two minutes' silence."
