You are very welcome to attend the service online which will be “live streamed” to the Buntingford Town Council Website, and the Buntingford Town Council Facebook page Live streaming will start at 10.45am and the service will commence at 10.50am.

The Royal British Legion is encouraging people to show their respect by holding a two minute silence at their doorstep.
