It was the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I so we were expecting a higher than average turnout for the Remembrance Sunday Parade and a Service at St Paul’s Church but we were overwhelmed to see several hundred Ramsbottom residents lining the streets of our town.
As your local Councillors, we laid a wreath on your behalf at the War Memorial outside St Paul’s to pay our respects to those Ramsbottom, Holcombe and Shuttleworth men and women who have laid down their lives in the service of our country.
Many of the town’s voluntary groups, cadets and emergency services were present.
Thanks must always go to the Ramsbottom Branch of the Royal British Legion and its volunteers for organising this important service of remembrance for those who have fought, and fallen, in conflict.
Lest We Forget.
