Hounslow Council Leader Cllr Steve Curran has welcomed plans to commemorate Remembrance Sunday at home and online this year.

Cllr Curran said: "Obviously because of the virus and the new national lockdown, we won’t be able to hold any big events or support parades as in a normal year. Some events will proceed, but these are invitation only and are much smaller.

"However while there may be a different approach, we are still honouring the memories of those lost to wars. The response to our online “Post a Poppy” campaign has been touching, and the Mayor's speech which is via video is typically dignified and poignant.

“Hounslow Council will be marking Remembrance with: 

  • A social media gallery of responses to its Post a Poppy campaign on Wednesday 11 November
  • A video from the Mayor on social media on Sunday and a commemorative graphic on social media at 5 to 11 on Sunday and Wednesday
  • All social media activity will pause at 11 on both days to honour the silence with all council staff will be invited to join the silence on Wednesday
  • The lighting of Hounslow House has also been arranged."
