About Renfrewshire Remembers

The services this year are especially poignant as 2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Renfrewshire’s annual Children's Remembrance Service will take place on Friday 9 November and will be held at the Mossvale and St James Primary School campus in Paisley.

The Royal British Legion Scotland– Paisley Comrades Division will attend to give pupils the opportunity to ask questions about the veteran’s experiences and the work of the Legion, before a minute’s silence is observed at 10am.

Commemorative events have been arranged on Armistice Day at cenotaphs or war memorials across Renfrewshire, with a special evening service being held in Paisley Abbey to mark the centenary of the armistice of the Great War.

The service in the Abbey will be followed by a concert of music, song and poetry performed by the Starlight Youth Music Theatre, Chamber Choir and the Johnstone Brass Band, beginning at 6:30pm and tickets are available directly from Paisley Abbey.

Renfrewshire's Provost Lorraine Cameron, said: "It is important that we continue to remember the sacrifices that the members of the Armed Forces have made for us and educate our younger generations on what has gone before them.

"Renfrewshire has a proud military tradition and the services of commemoration are a chance to recognise those who have done so much to shape past, present and future generations.

“I would encourage you to come along to any of the services and pay your respects to the fallen.”
