Gillian Whittle, leader in training with the 2nd Adlington St Paul’s Guides, said: “We just decided between ourselves we wanted to do something. We are meeting at 5.45pm at Adlington Cenotaph on Railway Road and we’re having a one minute silence at 6pm. We are asking people to bring candles to pay respect.”
