Remembrance services in Tameside

A number of services and ceremonies will be taking place across the borough to mark Remembrance Sunday. 

The events will be held by communities throughout Tameside between 9 and 11 November. 

Cllr Leigh Drennan, the Civic Mayor of Tameside, said: “On Remembrance Sunday, we have the opportunity to remember the men and women who gave their lives for their country in the two world wars and other conflicts. 

“We remember not only those who came from Tameside and the UK, but also the hundreds of thousands from the many parts of the empire and commonwealth across the globe.
