ONE thing that can be said about 2020 is that it has certainly been a year like no other.

With the coronavirus pandemic hitting in March and then dictating daily life ever since, it has been a year that will forever be remembered by all for the impact it has had on all our lives.

Things we have perhaps taken for granted before have changed beyond our wildest dreams, and there are many in the camp that life will never be the same again.

But while we do adjust to the 'new normal', it is still of paramount importance that we do keep traditions alive in the future.

This Sunday, and next Wednesday to mark the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we must ensure that we have the brave men and and women who have lost their lives in combat protecting our nation in our thoughts.

Typically, we would all be at poignant church services honouring the Fallen and paying tributes to our local heroes, but national lockdown means that these will either be cancelled or be broadcast online.

But we can not, and must not, lose stock of how important Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance Day events are, and we must endeavour to pay our own personal tributes however we see fit.

We pay our respects to our brave soldiers - Lest we forget.
