Renfrewshire Remembers

Communities across Renfrewshire are preparing for a weekend of Remembrance.

Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall, who will be attending the Children’s Remembrance Service and the Armistice Service in Paisley, said:  “This is a time when the community comes together to reflect on and honour the service of our armed forces past and present.

“Renfrewshire has a proud military tradition.  The services of commemoration give an opportunity for all of us to remember those who sacrificed so much for past and future generations.”

The proceedings start on Friday 11 November with the  Annual Renfrewshire Children’s Remembrance  Service.

Children from two Renfrewshire primary schools – Williamsburgh and St John Ogilvie – will join young musicians and military, civic and church representatives for a service in Paisley Abbey at 10.15, followed by the Two Minute Silence at 11am.
