Remembrance Sunday services for Lancaster district
This year's Remembrance Sunday falls on November 14 and a number of services have been arranged in the Lancaster district.
Everyone is welcome to attend and remember all who died for their country in the two World Wars and also those who served in more recent operations in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Iraq.
The Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Mike Greenall, said: “Remembrance Sunday is our opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have served their country and protected our way of life. This year also marks the Royal British Legion’s centenary, making this year's commemorations even more poignant, and I would urge people to support their work through a contribution to the annual Poppy Appeal.”
Remembrance Sunday services will take place as follows:
Garden of Remembrance, Town Hall, Lancaster starting at 10.30am, followed by a service in the Priory Church at 11.30am. There will be a parade and March Past leaving the Priory Church at the conclusion of the service and ending at Lancaster Town Hall at approximately 12.50pm.
