Tomorrow (Sunday) Remembrance Services will take place all over the country to honour those who died in two World Wars and other conflicts.

Provost Eileen Logan will attend the Carluke Remembrance Service in the town’s Market Square at 10.30am, where wreaths will be laid.

In Lanark there will be a church service, this year in St Nicholas Church, starting at 10.30am, and during this the silence at 11am will be observed.

After the service, uniformed organisations and other groups will parade up to Lanark Memorial Hall, where there will be a short service and wreaths will be laid at the names of the fallen inside the vestibule.

In Biggar everyone is invited to gather at 10.45am at the War Memorial for the Act of Remembrance and then proceed to church for all age worship, led by Rev Mike Fucella.

Among other events in Clydesdale, in Carstairs wreaths will be laid after the service at 12.30pm, while in Carnwath they will be laid at 10.45am, directly after morning worship.

And in Elsrickle, the wreath laying at the small war memorial at Townhead will again take place on November 11. Those taking part should assemble outside Townhead Cottage by 10.55am on Wednesday.
