HUNDREDS of people are expected to line the streets this weekend for Remembrance Day.

Events will take place across the town to tribute to those who gave their lives for their country.

Services will take place in Radcliffe, Bury and Ramsbottom on Sunday.

The Bury branch of the Royal British Legion has organised a Remembrance service and parade from Knowsley Street.

The parade will march from outside Bury Town Hall at 10.35am heading towards the war memorial in the town centre.

A service will then take place at Bury Parish Church at 11.45am, followed by a parade back to the town hall at 12.45pm.

Visitors are invited to attend a service in Gallipoli Garden, at the Fusilier Museum, or at Bury's war memorial, or at the memorial garden in the Tesco car park at Woodfields Retail Park for services starting at 11am.

In Radcliffe the parade will set off from the Royal Oak pub in Water Street between 10.30am and 10.45am and head to the war memorial in Blackburn Street.

There will be a short service held there, along with the laying of wreaths before the parade moves on to St Thomas and St John's Church for a service.

Following the service, attendees including veterans, the Army and Air Cadets, Scouts, Guides, St John Ambulance staff and members of various churches and local groups, will march back past the memorial and return to the Royal Oak.

Poppy Appeal organiser and member of the 1055 Radcliffe Air Cadets, Barry Young said: "We usually get quite a big crowd every year, the event fills the road when they stop the traffic.

"Radcliffe is pretty good at supporting the day and there always has been a lot of people who don't parade but come to watch.

"It is surprising just how generous the people of Radcliffe are."

Ramsbottom is another annual parade which has drawn out many people to pay their respects.

This year it will meet at the Royal British Legion club in Central Street from 10.30am, before setting out to St Paul's Church in Bridge Street at 10.50am.

The march will be led piper with a short service and the Last Post will sound at the war memorial outside followed by a service in the church, led by Reverend Andy Lindop.

The parade will then reassemble by the railway station and march back to the Royal British Legion at noon for a pie and pies supper.

Ramsbottom branch chairman and poppy appeal organiser, Colin Grundy added: "We usually get a couple of thousand people attending. It is very popular.

"It is followed by members of the Legion, ex servicemen and Scouts with 200 to 300 people on parade."
