The centre of Preston will fall silent this Sunday to remember those who gave their lives in the front line.

Remembrance Sunday takes place from 10am on Sunday 13th November with a parade starting at the covered market.

A service and minutes silence will be held on the flag market from 10.40am before all war veterans are served a hot pot in the Guild Hall.

Mayor of Preston Bobby Cartwright said: “Remembrance Day is a chance to stop and think and remember those who bravely gave their lives so that we can live ours and enjoy the freedom we have today.  Preston has very strong military links and connections and Remembrance Sunday is an opportunity for us all to show our gratitude to those who have served their country.”

On Friday the mayor and veterans will also hold a two minutes silence at the Cenotaph.
