Following advice and legislation issued by the Welsh Government, Community Council meetings are now able to be conducted by audio/video conferencing. Caerwent Community Council have implemented a system whereby Council meetings can be conducted, however at the present time we do not have the facility to allow the public to participate in these meetings. If you have anything you wish to raise or bring to the attention of the Council please email the clerk using the detail below and we will add it to the agenda for discussion at the next meeting
REMEMBRANCE DAY - SUNDAY 8TH NOVEMBER 2020
Caerwent Community Council are proud of the huge support we have for the annual service of remembrance held at the local war memorial.
Over the past few weeks discussions have been ongoing with various organisations regarding this year’s service, due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, and the restrictions currently in place regarding outdoor gatherings of no more than 30 people.
Many councils are cancelling their services this year or dramatically scaling back the usual services to meet the requirements of the current restrictions.
Caerwent Community Council, although currently in a low risk area, have to have consideration for these restrictions and it would be irresponsible for us to proceed in the normal way where it is usual for over 200 people to attend the service.
Regretfully, the Council have decided to this year scale back the commemoration to the laying of wreaths only by the organisations who normally participate in the service. This will ensure that approximately 6 to 8 people gather which is allowable under the current restriction. There will be no service, bugler or reading of the names on the day.
We appreciate that this decision will disappoint many people who wish to show their respect and gratitude to those who gave their lives for our freedom, but we would ask that in these unprecedented times you show your support by holding a door step show of respect instead of attending the war memorial in the usual fashion. We would suggest that this course of action could include a 2 minutes silence at 11.00 a.m on 8th November 2020.
Residents are also welcome to lay their own tributes to the fallen, but we would request that this is undertaken after the official wreath laying at 11.00 a.m on 8th November.
We would like to make it clear that this is something we have tried to avoid but like many other councils we must try to comply with COVID guidelines to try and keep our community as safe as we can. We would appreciate your assistance in this by refraining from attending the war memorial in the usual manner.
We would also like to ask if you know anyone who regularly attends the Remembrance Service and does not have access to social media that you pass on this information to them.
Notices will also be placed in the Post Office and community noticeboards.
We are hoping to provide a live feed of the wreath laying via social media details of which will be provided when finalised.
This website is dedicated to the memory of Bryan Morgan the original webmaster of this site.
