Civic leaders at remembrance service
The sacrifice and memory of Stirling’s war dead will be recognised this weekend as the UK marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.
A Service of Remembrance will be held in the Church of the Holy Rude this Sunday (November 11), at 10.45am to pay respect to members of the armed forces who lost their lives in the service of their country.
Following the service, there will be a parade from the church to the Cenotaph on Corn Exchange Road where the laying of wreaths will take place.
Provost Christine Simpson, Council Leader Scott Farmer, Chief Executive (Interim) Carol Beattie and representatives from the Guildry of Stirling and the Royal British Legion Scotland will be among those attending the service.
Provost Simpson said: “Remembrance Sunday is a poignant and moving day of reflection when we commemorate the sacrifices of our servicemen and women who paid the ultimate price in defending our country.
“Services to mark the occasion will be held across the area and our principal event will be at the Church of the Holy Rude in Stirling.
“With this being the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, a conflict that claimed the lives of so many people in our communities and across the country, I hope as many people as possible are able to join in the service at the Holy Rude and at the wreath laying ceremony at the Cenotaph.”
