Like many people, Remembrance Day is important to me, and I wear my poppy with pride.
My great-great grandfather fought in World War One and I think most people on Merseyside have some kind of personal or family connection with conflict – whether in one of the World Wars or more recent military operations.
I’ll be attending the Remembrance Sunday Service in Prescot this weekend, and on Armistice Day itself I’ll be paying my respects at the Cenotaph in Huyton, alongside many of my council colleagues.
If you are interested in attending your nearest Remembrance Service, they are taking place in Knowsley as follows:
· Kirkby – Sunday 8 November, 10.30-10.40am at the Cenotaph in front of Kirkby Municipal Building
· Prescot – Sunday 8 November, arrive at 10am for parade setting off at 10.25am from Prescot Primary School to Prescot Parish Church. Outdoor service at 10.50am followed by indoor service at 11.15am
· Huyton – Wednesday 11 November, 10.40am at the Cenotaph (opposite The Venue).
