With Government COVID-19 restrictions in place, the ceremonies that took place on and around Remembrance Sunday, the 8th of November 2020, to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in defence of their country were notably different to those that usually take place.

This notwithstanding, the Provincial Grand Secretary, WBro William Diggins, worked tirelessly to organise the distribution of 10-official wreaths, thereby ensuring that Northants and Hunts Freemasons were represented across the Province.

The tributes made by Northants & Hunts Masons were led by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, VWBro Charles Bennett, who took part in a virtual ceremony at St Lawrence Church, Towcester.

This was followed by the laying of several of the aforementioned wreaths around the Province.
