The National Police Memorial Day newsletter is available to view and download
Sadly in the newsletter you will read that the NPMD service is cancelled for this year, this is due to the ongoing restrictions around COVID-19.
National Police Memorial Day Co-ordinator, the Reverend Canon David Wilbraham MBE said:
“At this stage it is difficult to know what the situation will be later in the year and how that might affect planned events, including National Police Memorial Day.We are mindful of all those in the police family who have faced pressures over these weeks, whether in their own personal circumstances or professionally, as they have been part of the effort to keep people well and our communities safe.Based on the current circumstances, the Trustees of National Police Memorial Day have decided to cancel our gathering in Lincoln this year. We know that this decision will be a disappointment we all feel, and we will miss being together.However, we are absolutely committed to mark National Police Memorial Day over the last weekend of this September and do so in a way that will enable you and others to be part of it. It is likely that this will be an online memorial service. As soon as a decision has been made, we will make a further public announcement."
