Remembrance Services take place across Lancaster district

This year's Remembrance Sunday was marked with a number of services in the Lancaster district.

Residents and dignitaries turned out in their droves to remember all who died for their country in the two World Wars and also those who served in more recent operations.

In Lancaster, crowds attended the Garden of Remembrance, which was followed by a service in the Priory Church, and a parade and March Past ending at Lancaster Town Hall.

In Morecambe, a procession went from The Platform, and observed a two minutes silence at the cenotaph.

In Carnforth, a parade took place from Market Street to the war memorial.

There was also a 'Bare Remembers' service in the gardens on Princes Crescent in Bare, Morecambe.

The Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Roger Dennison, who is also the council’s armed services champion, said: “Remembrance Day ceremonies provide a special focus for communities to remember the sacrifices made for us now and for future generations.

“Please also remember the annual Poppy Appeal, which is the Royal British Legion’s principal source of funds and directly supports their welfare and benevolent work and support for those who serve their country now and have done so in the past.

The calls upon the Legion’s Services are growing with each passing year, so give generously and wear your poppy with pride.”
