In order to keep everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic, we have to limit the number of people who can attend the Remembrance Service this year. We are therefore issuing tickets, and admission will be by ticket only.
We know how disappointing this is, and therefore want to be open about how we have allocated tickets.
Tickets are being allocated across the groups of people who usually attend: British Legion, Cadets, the Local Council, Brownies, the Church Congregation, and the general public. Most tickets have been allocated to the British Legion and the Cadets.
We have 10 tickets for members of the congregation, and 15 tickets for the general public. More tickets may become available if any of the organisations don’t take up their full allocation — and we will therefore have a waiting list too.
If you would like a ticket there are two ways to add your name to the list if you want a ticket as a member of the congregation or the general public:
- Come to church on Sunday, 31 Oct or Sunday, 7 Nov. The service is at 11 am, and you can come to request a ticket in person after the service at 12 pm (approximately – just wait in the porch if the service is not quite over yet). We will ask for you name and phone number. No one may request more than 3 tickets, except in exceptional circumstances (e.g. someone needs a carer present).
- Ring the rectory phone between 12 – 2 pm any weekday between now and Remembrance. If you get the answering machine leave your name, your telephone, and the number of tickets you are requesting (no more than 3). The number is 01472 822172.
Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, and only by the means and at the times listed above.
We very much hope that by next year, we can return to normal and welcome all who wish to come.
The busier Christmas Services will be ticketed too — we will be holding Chrsitingle services on both 23 & 24 December. Keep and eye on this website and the church’s facebook account (facebook/walthamgroupchurches) to learn more about how and when to reserve your place.
