People across South Ayrshire are preparing to remember the valiant efforts of the men and women who died on active service at Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday events across the area.

Services will be held at churches and war memorials on Friday, November 11 and Sunday, November 13 - 104 years on from the signing of the Armistice that brought an end to the First World War.

Tributes will be paid to those who sacrificed themselves to protect our freedom in both World Wars, whilst also honouring those in the armed forces and emergency services who continue to serve and protect our communities.

South Ayrshire Provost, Iain Campbell said: “Remembrance is an incredibly important occasion, and we should never forget the sacrifices made by the generations who fought in previous conflicts.

"Although it’s now over 100 years since the end of the First World War, we still remember and the great symbol of Remembrance, the poppy, plays a vital role in this.

“Each year, November 11 is a pertinent reminder to us all of the large sacrifices our country has made for our freedoms and I’m pleased that post-covid we can participate in Remembrance services as we knew them.”

Services of remembrance will be held between Friday, November 11 and Sunday November, 13 across South Ayrshire.
