Letter from Chattri Memorial Group:-
Further to my email on 26th March when I informed you that the Annual Chattri Memorial Service was cancelled, I have some good news. Some of you replied and suggested we hold a virtual type of Service instead, not unlike the one we conducted last year. This was an excellent suggestion for which I’m very grateful. Therefore, I’m pleased to say that we have managed to hold a small Service, which will be shown on You Tube.
I am grateful to Brighton and Hove City Council for their financial backing and we were able to film it under Covid restrictions.
The short film of the Chattri Memorial Service will be shown on Sunday 13th June at 2.30 pm, the date and time when it would have taken place under normal circumstances. The link will also be available on our website, www.chattri.org or you can activate the link below on Sunday.
The link is: https://youtu.be/uy7c-noOZII
Please share this link with family and friends. In addition, a brief history of the Chattri history can also be found at the website.
I hope you will be able to virtually join in the Service and pay your respects in your own private way.
I’m sure you will appreciate that we have continued holding the Annual Memorial Service since 1951 when it was first started by the Royal British Legion, notwithstanding the challenges posed by the Covid 19 Pandemic.
Along the way we have lost family members or friends, some who regularly attended the Chattri Service and we share the loss with those affected and extend our condolences.
On a happier note, I hope we will all gather next year at the Chattri to pay our respects in our usual manner. I look forward to seeing you next year on 12th June 2022
With my best wishes and please keep safe.
Chair Chattri Memorial Group
