Communities across Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire are preparing to commemorate Remembrance Day 2015.
Military representatives past and present will join representatives of Renfrewshire Council and a wide range of organisations and community groups at services.
Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall, who will be attending Paisley’s Remembrance Service, said: “This is always a time when the whole community comes together to reflect on and to honour the service of our armed forces in military conflicts past and present.
“The services of commemoration give us all the opportunity to remember with pride those who sacrificed so much for their own and future generations.”
On Friday 6th November, pupils from Brediland Primary and St Paul’s Primary, both in Paisley, will attend a service at Paisley Abbey at 10.25am. The pupils will then walk to The Cenotaph accompanied by the Royal British Legion.
On Sunday 8th November 2015, the Remembrance commemorations taking place in Renfrewshire include:
