“This year, Remembrance Sunday will be particularly poignant, in view of the difficult and uncertain circumstances we are living in because of the pandemic,” said Councillor Pam Doodes, Chairman of Wealden District Council. “Our shared difficulties today would, in some ways, be familiar to those men and women who gave their lives in the conflicts over the past century. It is only fitting this week that we take some time to remember them, and their sacrifice.”
