Inver Park Act of Remembrance planned

Nov 5, 2020 | Archive

The Club will be holding a short Act of Remembrance on Saturday at Inver Park, in a private service ahead of the trip to take on Glentoran at the Oval.

Representatives from each of the three Supporters Clubs, members of the Royal British Legion, Chairman Gareth Clements as well as first team players will be in attendance at the socially distanced event, as we remember the fallen from the two world wars.

Unfortunately, due to current Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to open this to the wider public.

This is the second year in a row the Club have organised an Act of Remembrance, having joined for something similar ahead of the 0-0 draw with Crusaders last November, televised live on Sky Sports.

The short service will again be led by Club Chaplain Ian Cahoon and will include a Bible reading, prayers, minute’s silence, laying of the wreaths and the Last Post.

Looking ahead to the private event, Ian said: “Like so many other things in the world at this moment in time, we have to plan our Act of Remembrance differently to how we would like to do it.

“However, even though there will be fewer people in attendance than last year we felt Remembrance was something we still very much wanted to mark.

“Having the input from all three supporters clubs, first team and local Royal British Legion ensures we have a good representation in the small number who will be gathered.”
