FRONT PAGE NEWS
Teaming up to commemorate and celebrate in 2020
Events of all shapes and sizes have been decimated this year, but here in Sedgefield, we are blessed with a staggering number of vibrant community groups, powered by volunteers who make things happen. Normally, Sedgefield News devotes a page every month to events and we never struggle to fill it. Their absence for most of this year has been tough for everyone, and we can’t hide from the fact that not much will change in the near future. We say this with a heavy heart, because the last two months of the year are when some of our most significant community gatherings usually take place. But it’s not all doom and gloom! The folk of Sedgefield are renowned for their ingenuity - plenty has been shown already in 2020, with wonderful ‘virtual’ initiatives created to keep us busy and entertained. Now, that ingenuity is at work again and organisations and individuals are teaming up to help us commemorate and celebrate as best we can during November and December.

Remembrance Sunday on November 8th, is one of the our most important occasions of the year. The difficult decision has been made to not hold a service in St Edmund’s Church. Instead, leading up to 11am, a series of recorded prayers and readings will be shown on Twitter (@SedgefieldTC) and the website, www.sedgefieldtowncouncil.gov.uk/category/council-news .

Registering for the energy switch commits you to absolutely nothing. Once registration closes, there is a tendering process after which you will receive a personal offer. You then simply choose to accept or not, if you think it is worth it.
