Remembrance Sunday parades and services will be held in Burscough and Ormskirk next month.
The November 10 events, which pay tribute to people who suffered or lost their lives serving their country, will be attended by West Lancashire’s Mayor, Coun Iain Ashcroft.
He said: “Remembrance Sunday is a very important day when local people come together to honour those courageous men and women who have died in the service of their country. We gather with pride to pay our respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”
Coun Ashcroft, accompanied by West Lancashire Council’s managing director of people and places Gill Rowe, will join a parade at St Anne’s Church in Ormskirk at 9.30am for a short service at 9.45am.

At 10.15am the parade will march to Ormskirk Parish Church for the main service of remembrance.
This will be followed by the march past and salute at the main gate of the Parish Church.
The parade will then march to the Civic Hall.
The mayor will then attend the parade and service in Burscough, assembling outside Legion headquarters in Lord Street at 1.45pm and marching at 2pm to the War Memorial in Junction Lane where a wreath is laid.
