In Preston, a procession lined up along Birley Street and paraded to the war memorial where wreaths were laid.

The parade proceded to the Flag Market where the remembrance service began followed by a two-minute silence at 11am.

For Chorley’s service, a parade set off from St Thomas’ Road before a service at St Lawrence’s Church. The two-minute silence was then followed by the laying of the wreaths. Lostock Hall’s annual service started in the conservative club on Brownedge Lane at 2.30pm before moving to the war memorial for the service at 3pm.
