Remembrance Day: Get the family inspired, and involved, this November
Things are certainly different this year. We may not have had the usual festivals and parties, our gatherings are limited and short and when we’d usually flock to the streets in solidarity, we find ourselves still doing that cautiously, albeit from our doorsteps outside the front doors. Instead, we’ve turned our homes into visual monuments of support through the creation of pictures and paintings and flags. And for Remembrance Day this year, we’re encouraging you to continue doing the same!
Remembrance Sunday takes place on 8 November this year. And while our Town Council is putting the final plans in place to create a beautiful visual memorial for the day, to commemorate and honour the services of those who have fought to ensure our freedom, for those who want to do their part in visually supporting this auspicious day, we thought we’d tell you about a great little website called Colouring Heroes.
For ready-made colouring-in pictures for you to easily download and print out, the team behind Colouring Heroes have put together a fantastic selection of images – for all parts of the year, to honour those who are going beyond the call of duty to keep us safe. And if you’re looking for something to do with the family, while playing your part in the importance of Remembrance Day, here are some great resources to get the conversation going, and the creativity flowing.
