REMEMBRANCE services returned across Largs and neighbouring towns and villages at the weekend.

It was the first time in three years that the full parade had taken place in Largs in tandem with a church service, alongside a gathering at the town's war memorial for a two minutes silence at 11am.

The Boys' Brigade Pipe Band led the way to remember heroes past and present before an Act of Joint Worship took place in Clark Memorial, led by Rev. David Watson and Rev. May Bell.

Rev. Mark Goodman led the service at Largs War Memorial.

Emergency services including fire, police, coastguard and the Largs RNLI were all in attendance, while MP Patricia Gibson, Largs Community Council, Largs Community Resilience and other local groups all laid wreaths

Pupils and teachers from Largs Academy, Largs Primary and St Mary's also paid their respects as North Ayrshire Provost Anthea Dickson called on people to pay their respects to the fallen.

Provost Dickson told the News: “These services were a chance for our communities to come together and recognise sacrifices that have been made by those brave men and women in our armed forces, both past and present.”
