People are being urged to support the Royal British Legion’s (RBL) Every Poppy Counts Appeal and remember at home this year.

Events and parades have had to be cancelled due to lockdown restrictions, but the RBL wants people to place decorated poppies in their windows and make a donation.

Tributes to those who have lost their lives during armed conflicts could also include a two-minute silence to be held on doorsteps across the UK.

The main organisers of the events, the RBL, say: “We are encouraging people across the nations to ensure Remembrance Sunday is still marked appropriately by taking part in remote and socially distanced Remembrance activity, whether that be watching the service on television or pausing for the two-minute silence in their home or on their doorsteps.”

An A4 poster of the iconic remembrance poppy to be displayed at home can be downloaded at: would love to hear from you if you have decorated you window with poppies. You can send us a photo of your window as we hope to feature as many as possible in print and online. Send details to: clare, or:
