Sefton Remembrance Services: All you need to know
The Mayor of Sefton, councillors and council officers will all attend Remembrance Day services taking place across the borough next week
They will all remember those who died in conflict at services being held on Sunday, November 11.
The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson, will attend a morning service at the War Memorial, King’s Gardens, Bootle at 10.50am and an afternoon service at Holy Trinity Church, Formby at 3pm.
Councillors and other Sefton Council representatives will be present at a total of 11 services being held on Sunday, November 11 throughout the borough.
These will be held at other locations in Aintree, Ainsdale, Crosby, Hightown, Ince Blundell, Litherland, Maghull, Southport and Waterloo.
As with previous years members of the public are asked to arrive at a service in plenty of time. This is due to the high volume of residents expected to turn out to pay their respects.
Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Dave Robinson, said: “Each year Sefton councillors, officers, members of the public and our armed forces are rightfully present at the many emotional commemorative services taking place across the borough.
“As Mayor I am always very proud to attend to pay my respects and I as many people as possible will do the same on what is a very poignant and important day.
“Remembrance services give us the opportunity to spend some time to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave service men and women over the years in various conflicts.”
Cllr Bobby Brennan, Sefton Council’s Armed Forces champion, added: “The services we hold in Sefton are very important as we remember those who lost their lives in conflict past and present.
“We owe a huge debt to every single one of the fallen for the peace and freedom we currently enjoy today.”
