About Renfrewshire Remembers

Hundreds are expected to turn out to pay their respects to the fallen as parades are carried out in towns and villages across Renfrewshire, with services taking place to mark Remembrance Day.

A weekend of remembrance will begin on Friday 8 November as the annual Children’s Remembrance Service takes place at Mossvale and St James Primary in Paisley at 10.30am.

Veterans from the Royal British Legion will visit the school to see a presentation from the pupils on what they’ve learned about Remembrance Day, before speaking about their experiences of having served in Armed Forces.

On 10 November, parades will then take place from 10am to mark Remembrance Sunday, with a two minutes silence at 11am, and all are invited to attend at the following locations:

Houston: 10.00am - 10.30am
Kilbarchan: 10.00am - 10.30am
Renfrew: 10.45am - 11.15am
Paisley: 10.45am - 11.30am
Lochwinnoch: 10.45am - 11.15am
Howwood: 12.15pm - 12.45pm
Johnstone: 12.30pm - 1.00pm
Elderslie: 2.30pm - 3.00pm
Bridge of Weir: 3.00pm - 3.30pm

Renfrewshire’s Provost Lorraine Cameron said: “Every year at this time we stop to remember those we have lost, and I would encourage all who are able to attend to come to one of the services taking place across Renfrewshire.

“It’s so important that we pay our respects to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice and I look forward to the community once again coming together to show their gratitude for all that have gone before us.

“Through our Children’s Remembrance Service, we will work closely with our veterans to educate our young people and show exactly why we mark Remembrance Sunday each and every year.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Renfrewshire Remembers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
