We are taking advantage of this unusual situation and inviting as many people as possible to join us for our Service to Remember. All schools in North Yorkshire are invited to view the service on Friday, 6 November, the day we would have all been in the together.

The theme this year is Heroes, to reflect not only war heroes, but the heroes of this past year – the keyworkers. The service children of North Yorkshire have contributed artwork and poems to the service, detailing their own personal heroes.
