Book of Remembrance goes online

Middlesbrough is now in Tier 3. There are restrictions on some businesses, and meeting people. Get the latest local updates.

People in Middlesbrough are invited to remember those who gave their lives to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life in an online Book of Remembrance.

The web page has been created due to this year's Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service being unable to be held due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Book of Remembrance will give members of the public the opportunity to share their photos and stories of family members and friends and pay tribute to their special contribution.

Sign the Book of Remembrance now.

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: "So many things that are really important to us as a community have been stopped by the pandemic.

"The Remembrance Day Parade and Service is sadly one of those but we won't let the occasion go unmarked.

"We'd really love as many people as possible to share their stories and their photos and their tributes and help us make sure that those who gave their lives for us are remembered and celebrated as they should be."

This year's Poppy Appeal is now under way and while stalls and street collections won't be going ahead this year, collection boxes will be available in the Cleveland Centre, and donations can be made online.

The annual sale raises money to give practical help to all men and women who have served in the Armed Forces, and to their widows and dependants.

To donate to the Poppy Appeal online, visit the British Legion website.
