Remembrance Services Tomorrow

Paisley Cenotaph

Communities across Renfrewshire are preparing to commemorate Remembrance Day.

Members of the Royal British Legion and the armed forces will join representatives of Renfrewshire Council and a wide range of organisations and community groups at services.

Renfrewshire’s Provost Celia Lawson, who will be attending Paisley’s Remembrance Service, said: “This is a time for all of us to honour the service given by our armed forces and their sacrifice in military conflicts past and present.

“The services of commemoration are a time to remember those who gave so much for us.”
