What a year 2020 has been. The levels of disruption brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic has seen many events cancelled, due to government restrictions made in the interests of keeping infection rates down. Thursday 5 November marked the first day of a second national lockdown for England, meaning that places all over the country are abiding by strict social distancing measures. As such, the City of Liverpool commemorated this year’s Service of Remembrance via a virtual service, originally streamed on Sunday 8 November and held at St George’s Hall. If you missed it and wish to pay your respects, you can do so here: liverpoolexpress.co.uk/sor.
Following on from this, we share with you a short Roll of Honour additions service, filmed in our Hall of Remembrance to mark Armistice Day. The Rector of Liverpool, the Reverend Canon Dr. Crispin Pailing, was joined by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Anna Rothery, as well as Commodore Phil Waterhouse, in this Service of Rededication for the addition of names to the Roll of Honour.
