The people of East Kilbride will be remembering the war dead at special ceremonies taking place on Sunday. Ex-service organisations, accompanied by uniformed youth groups and members of the armed forces organisations, will gather at Legion Scotland East Kilbride in Bosfield Place for the parade which starts at 10.20am. The parade will then make its way to the town’s Cenotaph, off Graham Avenue in East Mains, where members of the public are welcome to attend. The officiating clergy will be Rev Anne Paton of East Kilbride Old Parish Church and Father Rafal Sobieszuk of St Bride’s RC Church. Following a short service, during which two minutes of silence will be observed at 11am, wreaths will be laid in tribute on behalf of the various organisations in attendance. The parade, led by East Kilbride Pipe Band and followed by South Lanarkshire Council representatives, other dignitaries, The Royal British Legion and military units, will march to the Old Parish Church for the Service of Remembrance conducted by Rev Paton. Services of remembrance will also be taking place simultaneously at other churches throughout the town and surrounding district. After the service, the parade will make its way back to Legion Scotland East Kilbride where all the participants will be offered a buffet lunch. There will also be charity cheque presentations to Erskine Hospital, Soldiers off the Street, Help for Heroes and Kilbryde Hospice.
