Friends of Flaybrick will hold an annual Remembrance Day service
A BIRKENHEAD charity will hold its annual remembrance service which is to take place on Armistice Day.
On Friday, November 11, the service at Friends of Flaybrick Memorial Gardens will be led by ministers from local churches, and more than 400 guests are expected to join the day.
Birkenhead MP Mick Whitley, Deputy Mayor of Wirral Cllr Jerry Williams and children from local schools will also take part in the service.
Rob Dolphin, President of the Friends of Flaybrick, said: “The ceremony gives us the opportunity once a year to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live in freedom and our group of volunteers will work hard on the next few weeks to prepare for the day.
“We are delighted to have local schools on board and are very grateful to MP Mick Whitley and Cllr Jerry Williams for taking the time to attend.
“We expect our usual number of supporters to attend the ceremony and with local schools in attendance, we expect somewhere in the region of 400 people to attend that day. Anyone who lives locally or anyone with an interest for Flaybrick Memorial Gardens is more than welcome to attend.
Participants are asked to begin gathering at the Cross of Sacrifice in front of the chapels from approximately 10:40 a.m. the same day.
