On Sunday, November 12, people in South Ayrshire will join with the nation to remember those who lost their lives in world wars and conflicts around the world.
With members of our Armed Forces currently on active service and with some having made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, this is an opportunity to remember them and those civilians who have also lost their lives.
There are services taking place across South Ayrshire and everyone welcome to attend. South Ayrshire Provost Helen Moonie said: “We should never forget those who have given their lives so that others can have a better future. The memorial services are an opportunity for communities to come together to pay their respects.
“There will be a service near you so please take the time to attend but if you can’t make it, take a few moments to reflect and remember.”
