Acts of Remembrance have taken place in each of the villages in our Parish of Thornton-le-Moors with Ince and Elton on this most significant Remembrance Sunday, the centenary of the signing of the Armistice in 1918.

Acts of Remembrance have taken place in each of the villages in our Parish of Thornton-le-Moors with Ince and Elton on this most significant Remembrance Sunday, the centenary of the signing of the Armistice in 1918.

At 10am, at St. James', Ince, we were joined by representatives of the local uniformed organisations who paraded from Elton to join us for our Service of Remembrance.

At 11.30am, at the newly unveiled memorial in Elton, the Revd Ruth Ackroyd led a short service as wreaths were laid.

At 12noon respects were paid at the War Memorial at St. Mary's, Thornton-le-Moors, in honour of those who gave their lives in the First World War and Second World War, their names being inscribed on the monument.

At 12.30pm, as part of the national Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport initiative, we tolled the three bells at St. James’ church, Ince in tune with many other churches around the country.

Finally, at 6pm we were joined by the Mayor of Ellesmere Port, Cllr. Karen Shore, for a Civic Service of Remembrance and reflection to close our proceedings on a most memorable and auspicious day.

We Will Remember Them.
