About East Renfrewshire Remembrance Services

Residents, councillors, local dignitaries and veterans will meet together at services across the authority to pay their respects.

Events will begin with a service in Newton Mearns at the war memorial at Mearns Cross, which has been organised by the local branch of the British Legion.

The parade will leave Fairweather Hall at 10.50am to reach the memorial for 11am where a wreath-laying ceremony will take place.

A service will also be held at the Newton Mearns Synagogue, on Larchfield Avenue commencing at 11.30am.

In Neilston, a service will be held by Neilston War Memorial Association at the war memorial adjacent to St Thomas Church on Main Street at 12 noon.

In Barrhead, a parade will leave the United Services Club at 2pm for a remembrance service at the war memorial in Cowan Park, from 2.30pm.

A service will be held at Giffnock South Parish Church, on Greenhill Avenue commencing at 7pm.

Provost Fletcher said: “Remembrance Sunday gives us all an opportunity to mark the area’s fallen war heroes, honouring those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom. This day of remembrance gives us time to reflect, as well as showing our respect and gratitude to our armed forces. This year marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and I am honoured to have the opportunity to be a part of these services.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for East Renfrewshire Remembrance Services are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
