VIDEO: WHILE no official Remembrance Sunday parades took place in Warrington due to the national lockdown the Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Maureen Creaghan, honoured the fallen by laying a wreath at the town’s Cenotaph while small gatherings took place in local communities.

A planned private ceremony and wreath-laying at St Elphin’s Parish Church – for a small number of civic leaders, war veterans and armed forces members was cancelled for safety reasons but around 200 people attended a service at Bridgefoot cenotaph, while a small outdoor service also took place at Appleton Thorn and other churches around the town.
Mayor of Warrington, Cllr Maureen Creaghan, said: “While the national lockdown means we cannot mark Remembrance Sunday in the same way, it’s important that we continue to honour all those who have been injured or lost their lives fighting for their country.”
The Mayor (pictured below) is also President of Warrington Male Voice Choir, who played a virtual tribute to honour the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families, through a special Remembrance performance on YouTube. (see below)

  1. Good on you Cllr.Lest we forget.I was there.I thought I would be alone.I thank other veterans for their support.We would do it again.It’s called respect. The Police not only got down on their knees to support the BLM march,they escorted them through town.An illegal March. We all socially distanced,except for the Police
