Pay respects to fallen with a two-minute doorstep silence in Stansted Mountfitchet on Remembrance Sunday




Residents in Stansted wishing to pay their respects to fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen on Remembrance Sunday are being asked to stand on their doorsteps and observe a two-minute silence.

The usual war memorial service has been downscaled due to Covid-19 restrictions. The gardens in Chapel Hill will be closed off to the public between 10.30am and 11.30am on Sunday November 8 for a private wreath-laying event, which will be filmed and placed on social media afterwards.

"We appreciate that many residents will want to take part and we would ask you to do this by standing on your doorstep for the two-minute silence at 11am," said a parish council spokesperson.
