Where to re­mem­ber them

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

Hun­dreds of peo­ple in South Ayr­shire will join with the na­tion to re­mem­ber those that have lost their lives in World Wars and in other con­flicts on Sun­day.

With mem­bers of our Armed Forces cur­rently on ac­tive ser­vice and with some hav­ing made the ul­ti­mate sacri­fice for their coun­try, this is an op­por­tu­nity to re­mem­ber them and civil­ians who have also lost their lives.

There are Acts of Re­mem­brance tak­ing place across South Ayr­shire on Sun­day, Novem­ber 12 and any­body is wel­come to at­tend.

In Ayr, there will be a short ser­vice led by Rev David Gem­mell at the war me­mo­rial, Welling­ton Square at 12.15pm. Wreaths of red pop­pies will be laid, fol­lowed by a two- minute si­lence, the sound­ing of the Last Post and Reveille and the Na­tional An­them.

A short cer­e­mony will also take place at the war me­mo­rial, Welling­ton Square, Ayr on Satur­day Novem­ber 11 at 10.45am to mark Armistice Day.

South Ayr­shire Provost He­len Moonie said: “We should never for­get those that have given their lives so that oth­ers can have a bet­ter fu­ture.

“The me­mo­rial ser­vices are a com­fort to many and an op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­ni­ties to come to­gether to pay their re­spects.”

Ser­vices will be held at the fol­low­ing War Memo­ri­als on Sun­day, Novem­ber 12. Troon - War Me­mo­rial 10.45am. Es­planade, Troon
