COVID-19 Guidance for seasonal events

Stay safe and mark major events at home

There are major events coming up soon, and we want to make sure you stay safe and observe them safely at home.

We are going to have to mark events differently this year as Pendle, along with the rest of Lancashire, has a very high Covid alert level.

Remembrance Sunday - 8 November

Processions for Remembrance Sunday are also not possible this year. People in Pendle should remember from home on Remembrance Day, Sunday 8 November.

Instead, you can take part in a two minute silence at 11a.m. on Remembrance Sunday, for example at your front door.  There will also be Remembrance Day coverage on TV and online.

And we are also asking local people to share photos relating to Remembrance Day on Instagram, using the hashtags #PendleRemembers and #LancashireRemembers.

You could share a photo of someone in your family who fought in World War l or ll or a friend or relative who has been in the armed forces or who has been affected by armed conflict.

On behalf of the people of Pendle, The Mayor of Pendle, Cllr. Ken Hartley, will be handing wreaths over to local organisers at Pendle war memorials in advance of Remembrance Sunday. 

Ex service man Paul Tunstill, who works in Pendle Council’s Environmental Health Team is taking part in the Tommy 10k national sponsored run to raise funds for The Royal British Legion. He is running 10 km a week up to 11 November to raise money for injured veterans. If you want to, you can make a donation via this facebook page.
