This year, because of coronavirus lockdown, there will be no public act of remembrance.

Volunteers will not be going house to house or offering poppies in the street.

Poppies are still available in some essential shops in Dunmow which are open, including convenience stores, supermarkets and Ropers Chemist.

You can also download a poppy picture, either ready to pin up or one that can be coloured at home from here

Or you could even get creative and design your own.
