LEST WE FORGET
People across the country will come together this Sunday to pay their respects at Remembrance Day Services. The laying of wreaths at war memorials and church services marks the end of World War One, as well as remembering those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice on 11th November 1918, and at that moment we remember those who died with a two minutes silence.
Remembrance Sunday services will take place as follows in the Lancaster and Morecambe area:
• Morecambe Cenotaph, Marine Road – Procession will form up at The Platform, led by Morecambe Band, leaving at approximately 10.40am, for a service and two minutes silence at the cenotaph.

• Carnforth – The parade will leave the council offices on Market Street at approximately 10.30am and then proceed along North Road and New Street to the war memorial for a service at 11am.
