2020 has been a year like no other. As news of a second lockdown became public, the Royal British Legion made plans locally to bring Remembrance forward, with short ceremonies taking place on Wednesday last week.

The Midsomer Norton & Radstock Branch of the Royal British Legion had a brief, informal wreath-laying ceremony at local War Memorials at Midsomer Norton, Radstock and Westfield, with a two

minute silence held at each.

Local villages also paid their respects, with a socially-distanced ceremony held in Timsbury on Sunday. A short service was conducted by Rev. Martin Blewitt, Barry Sewell, Chairman of Timsbury Branch of the Royal British Legion, Chris Fiddes, Standard Bearer and John Hare, Bugler, playing the Last Post.

Wreaths were placed by representatives of the three services,

Timsbury RBL, Cheshire Home, Brownies, Lions and Parish Council. For the first time in its history, Timsbury Royal British Legion Club was unable to open after the service for refreshments, however, We Did Remember Them.
