CIVIC officials have announced details of this year's Remembrance Sunday programme in Inverclyde.

Every town and village will honour the fallen on Sunday November 10, with services held in Greenock, Gourock, Port Glasgow, Inverkip, Kilmacolm and Wemyss Bay.

There will be a service at Wellpark Mid Kirk at 10.45am then the cenotaph at around 12.30pm.

Lyle Hill will be the focus around 1.30pm as it welcomes the French Consul, Mrs Laurence Pais, to commemorate the personnel of the Free French Navy who were stationed in Greenock during the Second World War.

She will be joined by Vice Lord Lieutenant Hugh Currie and a representative of the Canadian Government, Commander Bursey.

Port Glasgow Parish Church will host a service at 10.45am then to the cenotaph at 12.30pm.

In Gourock the service will be held at Old Gourock & Ashton Church at 10.45am followed by the cenotaph at noon.

The Old Kirk in Kilmacolm will host the service at 10.45am then to the cenotaph.

In Inverkip, the parish church will host the service at the same time, then to the cenotaph.

Wemyss Bay and Skelmorlie Church will welcome people at 10.45am before the cenotaph proceedings.

Wreaths will be laid at the Toll Boys Memorial in Port Glasgow at 2pm and at the memorials at Broomhill in Greenock and Woodhall in Port Glasgow during the afternoon.

Inverclyde’s Tommies, poignant artworks commissioned last year to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, will stand watch at or close by each of Inverclyde’s war memorials.

Provost Martin Brennan said: “All of the veterans who fought in the First World War have now passed away and the majority of those from the Second World War are now in their 90s.

"There will come a time in the not too distant future when none are left alive.

“Despite losing this living link we will still remember the sacrifice they and their comrades made on our behalf, many of them in their teens and twenties.

"We will also remember those service men and women who have given their lives in the line of duty during the many conflicts since the First and Second World Wars.

“The Tommies are a poignant reminder of the impact on local communities of losing so many young people, every one someone’s son, daughter, brother, sister, father or mother.”
