This year due to the current situation with COVID-19 and restrictions on gatherings Littlehampton Town Council are encouraging people to show their respect for the fallen at home by observing the two-minute silence outside their front doors at 11am on Sunday 8th November. If you want to display a poppy in your window to show respect, then you can download a copy here or you can download a poppy to colour in here.
You can buy and wear a poppy to show your support. All the local shops Tesco's, Morrison’s, Lidl, and Aldi have boxes with lots of Poppy items and collection cans.
There are also other ways you can help with fundraising from running and walking to baking. Just visit the Poppy Appeal website for ideas and a free fundraising pack. If you simply just want to donate then you can do this here. You can also donate via text by texting POPPY2 for £2, POPPY5 for £5 or POPPY10 for £10 to 70545.
St Mary’s Church will be holding a parish service which will include a short act of remembrance at 10am on Remembrance Sunday. This will be live on the St Mary's Facebook page.
