The annual Remembrance Sunday service was held on a beautiful sunny day at the Southport Cenotaph. Following the Exhortation from the Chairman of the Royal British Legion and ‘The Last Post’, a two-minute silence was observed by all present.
Wreaths were then laid, beginning with a Representative from the Merseyside Lieutenancy and The Worshipful, The Mayor of Sefton, Councillor Clare Louise Carragher 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.
