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.”
