Although started as a reaction to the First World War, Great Britain still believes strongly in remembering not only those who fought in the two World Wars but also more than 12,000 British Servicemen and women killed or injured since 1945. This is demonstrated not only by the support for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal but also by the Remembrance Sunday services which are always held on the 2nd Sunday in November and the services that are also held on on 11th November, Armistice Day, itself.

Locally, Remembrance Sunday Services on 8th November will take place at 09.30 hours at St Peter's in Duddon and at 11.00 hours at St Andrew's in Tarvin, following a service at the War Memorial at 10.50 hours.

On Wednesday, 11th November there will be a short service held at the War Memorial
