COVID-19: Local Events.
Information published on 22nd October by Stirling Council.
Remembrance Day commemorations this year will be subject to the restrictions imposed by the Scottish government to manage the Covid-19 pandemic. Two sections of the guidance affect these events: one deals with live events taking place outdoors and the other with services that take place in or near to a place of worship. The links below detail the relevant advice on the Scottish government website.

Please note that, in view of these restrictions, the usual ceremony at Lochearnhead will not be taking place this year.
A service at Balquhidder will take place as normal, forming part of the service of worship at the parish church, with the appropriate measures in place for social distancing.
Please note that the service at Strathyre, which is normally held in the afternoon, will now not go ahead because there is only restricted space in which people can gather and proper social distancing is likely to prove impossible. With the infection rate currently on the increase and the practical problems of ensuring effective precautions, it has been decided that no formal service will be held this year. Anyone wishing to pay their respects and perhaps leave a memento is invited to make a personal visit on Sunday 8th November or on Armistice Day itself.
