The latest government advice is that a risk assesment for containing the virus must be evaluated with regard for public safety.

There has been be a short private wreath laying ceremony at these Churchesand the names of the Fallen were read out. Our photo shows our reader Joy Smith at St Botolph's Church, Grimston and similarly Revd. Sue Martin carried out the ceremony at St Nicholas, Gayton and both later at Ashwicken All Saints.

Commemorative service also took place at Gt Massingham and Harpley on the day. There is more from Harpley here.
