Remembrance Day services will take place in Trafford on Sunday

The services will take place on Sunday 14 November for Remembrance Day, with eight events to be held.

The services will allow people in Trafford to pay tribute to the men and women who gave their lives in both world wars and in recent conflicts.

Last year, Covid restrictions meant that only one service was held in the district, which was by invitation only.

This year, however, will see a return to eight services in the borough, all of which will be open to the public.

In accordance with current Covid guidelines, those planning to attend are asked not to do so if they show symptoms of the virus. Residents are also asked to take a sidestream test in advance and should not participate if the result is positive to minimize the risk of infection.

The Mayor of Trafford, Cllr Laurence Walsh, will lead civilian dignitaries at the public service, which this year takes place on Chester Road, Stretford. The service begins at 10:55 after the arrival of the parade of uniformed organizers.

The mayor said: “It is a great privilege to be able to honor our heroes who gave their lives to defend our precious freedoms.

“It is especially poignant after not being able to hold worship services throughout our neighborhood last year.

“I would urge everyone to show their respect on Remembrance Sunday and reflect on the sacrifice our service men and women have made on our behalf.”
