Fife Council is staging an online service to mark Remembrance Sunday.

It takes place at 10:30am and will replace the traditional major, large gatherings at war memorials which have been cancelled because of the pandemic.

While churches will be hosting services, spaces are limited and have to be booked to meet with restrictions, so the local authority’s online service is a way for people to pause and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Councillor Rod Cavanagh, Fife’s armed forces champion, said: “I do also believe there may be some very small services taking place at memorials around Fife for wreaths to be laid.”He added: “I would encourage you not to attend these; rather stay at home, watch the services on TV and online and at 11am, stand on your doorstep along with your neighbours and observe the two-minute silence.”
