Face coverings distributed to secondary schools for the start of the new term


45,000 additional face coverings are being provided to secondary schools this week to help pupils keep themselves and their school communities safe when they return for the remainder of the autumn term.

This is in addition to the 45,000 face coverings which the Council provided to secondary schools at the beginning of September and means that pupils can replace any lost or damaged face coverings with new ones.

The Council strongly recommends that all secondary school pupils wear face coverings when in communal areas or where social distancing cannot be observed.

The sorting and delivery of the masks was coordinated by the Central Stores Team in Dominions Way, who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to support critical frontline services and have delivered millions of items of PPE over the last few months.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission to illuminate the sky above Cardiff for Armistice Day "line no other"


On 11thNovember, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is lighting up the sky above Cardiff to pay tribute to the 1.7 million Commonwealth war dead as part of its #ShineOn Remembrance activities.

#ShineOn is CWGC's inclusive, accessible, digital Remembrance event that is completely free and open to all.

Through a virtual experience on the CWGC website, making use of the Commission's existing extensive records and search facility, the public will be able to name stars after one of the 1.7 million Commonwealth war dead in CWGC's care. The CWGC is then encouraging everyone to take a moment at 7pm on 11thNovember 2020 to step outside their homes, look at the stars and remember the fallen.

In a few key locations, including the CWGC's war graves plot at Cardiff Cathays Cemetery, searchlights will beam light into the Armistice night sky from CWGC cemeteries and memorials, not to encourage crowds, but in a symbolic gesture that the light of remembrance, even in these dark times, will never be extinguished.

The lights will be visible for miles around and those who live locally are encouraged to look to the sky at 7pm and watch from the safety of home. The installations are not there to encourage crowds.
