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.”
On Friday November 11, Paisley will host the unique Children’s Remembrance Service starting at 10.30am with a procession from Paisley Town hall to the Cenotaph for a wreath-laying ceremony.
On Sunday November 13, the Paisley Remembrance Service at 11am will be preceded by a march by the Royal British Legion to the Cenotaph followed by prayers, scripture readings and a wreath-laying.
