Largs War Memorial is receiving a makeover in time for Remembrance weekend.
The Council’s Streetscene team has pulled out the stops to ensure North Ayrshire pays a fitting tribute as we mark 100 years since the end of World War One.
The Largs branch of the Royal British Legion, who have organised the Armistice Day in Largs on Sunday 11 November, have been in touch with the council regarding providing improvements at the War Memorial.
A spokesman for North Ayrshire Council said: "Bronze restoration, stone cleaning and repointing will be complete by end of next week. 
Poppy seeds were also planted in bedding areas throughout North Ayrshire as part of the commemoration."
Poppies are on display at Cardiff Street in Millport, and Largs.
A memorial bench is also being installed at the Millport War Memorial which received a facelift last year.
The Streetscene team has also designed and constructed a new commemorative sign at Greenock Road, Largs.
Councillor Jim Montgomerie, Cabinet Member for Place, said: “The team has worked really hard to ensure everything is in place. Remembrance Day is always hugely emotional but this year promises to be even more poignant with it marking 100 years since the start of the First World War.
“The war memorials all look fantastic and the poppy bedding areas are another really nice touch." 
"The works on the various memorials vary but generally included repatinating bronze, repainting lettering, cleaning structures and bases, repointing and replacing/reset of paving slabs to ensure they are all in great condition."
Prestigious events to mark centenary of the end of the Great War will be taking place throughout the day in Largs on Sunday 11 November.
There will be a short ceremony involved Largs BB band who will be performing 'The Battle is O'er' at 6am to mark when the armistice was signed 100 years ago.
The Largs branch of Royal British Legion Scotland (RBLS) are currently busy in preparations for the big day, and have managed to purchase six marquees to provide protection in case of inclement weather, which will allow for 130 visitors.
The official Remembrance parade will leave from Crawford Street (outside Drouthy Neebors) at 10.25am.
A drumhead service will begin at Largs War Memorial at 10.40am and continue until 10.55am involving Largs Churches Together. 
Everything stops at 10.55 for The Last Post before the two minutes silence at 11am to mark Armistice.
The laying of the wreathes will then take place led by Mr Jack Ransom, 98 year old President of the Largs branch of RBLS with Linda Hopkins, grand-daughter and Jay Morrow, 11 year old great great grandson of Robert Hopkins whose name is on the War Memorial, will also lay down wreathes. 
A Lance Corporal, Robert was enlisted in the army joining the 1/6 Battalion (Black Watch), and died of wounds sustained in battle and was awarded the Military Medal for bravery in the field posthumously.
After the Remembrance event at Largs War Memorial, tea and coffee will be available at Clark Memorial and St John's churches. 
At 3pm, there will also be a wreath casting on the Cumbrae to Largs ferry in respect of those who were involved in memory of all who perished at sea. This service will be led by Rev. Jonathan Fleming
