Remembrance Sunday services will take place across Wirral this Sunday (10th November).
The Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Tony Smith, will join representatives from the armed forces, veterans, cadets and the emergency services at The Cenotaph in Hamilton Square, Birkenhead for Wirral’s Civic Service at 10.55am, before heading to the Thornton Hough service in the afternoon.
The Mayor said: “As well as being the most important duty of my Mayoral year, it is a real honour to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph on behalf of everyone in Wirral.
“The Service of Remembrance is always a moving experience and I hope that as many people as possible will join me in Hamilton Square, or go along to their local service, to remember the bravery and sacrifices made by so many veterans and their families, right up to the present day.”
