Cllr Rob Polhill, Halton Borough Council leader, said: “I am pleased to announce that we are sponsoring the Silent Silhouettes, and have also repaired and cleaned the main war memorials across the borough to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
“The silent silhouettes are the idea of the Royal British Legion as a ‘thankyou’ to the World War I generation who served, sacrificed, rebuilt and changed the nation.
“There are different silhouettes ● to symbolise the communities that took part in WWI.
“I think they are a great idea as they’ve allowed communities to display their thanks and have also raised funds towards the work that the Legion does day in, day out to support service personnel, veterans and their families.
“Let’s hope this year is the best collection ever, on this the anniversary of the end of WWI.”
