The annual Remembrance Sunday service was held on a beautiful sunny day at the Southport Cenotaph. Following a short service and ‘The Last Post’ from a Salvation Army bugler, a two-minute silence was observed by all present.
Wreaths were then laid, beginning with the Mayor of Sefton’s Representative, the leader of Sefton Council, Councillor Ian Maher on behalf of the townspeople of Sefton.
President Carol Cookson laid the wreath for Soroptimist International of Southport.
The Presiding Minister led the act of commitment:
– To commit to responsible living and faithful service
– To strive for all that makes for peace
– To seek to heal the wounds of war
– To work for a just future for all humanity
Following a blessing and the National Anthem, the contingents from the armed forces, cadets and many other groups marched down Lord Street and past the Town Hall.
A very moving and dignified service.
