IT has been confirmed that wreaths will be laid as usual at the war memorial in Huntly on Remembrance Sunday on November 8.
However, in a major change from the long standing tradition, there will be no parade for ex servicemen, youth and adult organisations and members of the public to show their respect to people who lost their lives in the two World Wars or subsequent conflicts.
Sheena Arthur of Huntly and District Ex Servicemen's Club is coordinating arrangements.
Mrs Arthur said: "Wreaths will be laid by a number of organisations who will meet at 10am at the war memorial. The Reverend Carol Ford will conduct a short service and pipers and buglers will play.
"Members of the public who want to attend must social distance and are advised to also wear masks.
"Hopefully by next year we can return to something more normal."
