Remembrance Sunday was marked in a different way this year not only in Hackney but across the country. 

The one month national lockdown which began on Thursday meant large gatherings were not able to physically come together to remember members of the Armed Forces who have died in the line of duty.

In the absence of the usual participants which have previously included ex-service men and women, cadets, emergency services, school children and members of the community, this year the Speaker of Hackney Cllr Kam Adams, along with the Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville and the Queen’s representative to Hackney, Lt Col Morris laid wreaths at St John-at-Hackney War Memorial and the Town Hall square. 

 

A wreath was also laid at Stoke Newington War Memorial Hall by Hackney’s Deputy Speaker, Cllr Michael Desmond.
