The Royal British Legion and Haverfordwest Town Council have made the decision to cancel the Sunday Remembrance Service with Parade and all of the customary Remembrance Services in Haverfordwest in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the interest of safeguarding our community, we would appeal to you not to gather at the Cenotaph on Sunday 8th or Wednesday 11th of November 2020 but to pay your respects to those who have fallen at home.

Poppy wreaths can still be laid at the Cenotaph at the discretion of each individual/representative whilst adhering to current Government Covid-19 Regulations, notably those relating to social gatherings and social distancing.  Wreaths can be ordered by contacting Peter Bannister, Poppy Appeal Organiser, on 01437 751332. Poppies and pins are available in outlets which are permitted to remain open and can also be ordered online at www.rbl.org.uk/poppyappeal

A private Remembrance Service will be held in St David’s Church, which will be by invitation only to comply with current Government Regulations relating to Covid-19. This Service will be recorded and posted on the Facebook pages of Haverfordwest Royal British Legion and Haverfordwest Town Council.

The Town Mayor and Chairman of the Haverfordwest Branch of the Royal British Legion will lay wreaths on behalf of the community on Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph, whilst complying with Government Regulations.
