Everyone is welcome to attend and remember all who died for their country in the two World Wars and also those who served in more recent operations.

The Mayor of Lancaster, Councillor Roger Dennison, who is also the council’s armed services champion, said: “Remembrance Day ceremonies provide a special focus for communities to remember the sacrifices made for us now and for future generations.

“Please also remember the annual Poppy Appeal, which is the Royal British Legion’s principal source of funds and directly supports their welfare and benevolent work and support for those who serve their country now and in the past. The calls upon the Legion’s Services are growing with each passing year, so give generously and wear your poppy with pride.”
