DOZENS turned out to Tillicoultry War Memorial at the weekend to pay their respects on Remembrance Sunday.

The day fell on November 14 this year and while there was no official parade, more than 50 people met up at the memorial following church services in the Hillfoots town.

All churches were represented during the Act of Remembrance as were youth organisations, the community council and the local authority along with veterans and individuals.

Wreaths were laid by representatives, including Clackmannanshire deputy lord lieutenant Hector Nicolson on behalf of the lieutenancy.

He was pleased to see so many people come out on a dry, but cold day, following last year which saw events hampered by Covid-19 restrictions.

Tillicoultry, Coalsnaughton and Devonside Community Council laid two wreaths earlier on November 11 both at the war memorial and the VC Gardens.

The community council's Ewart McAuslane said: “It was more ad hoc than it normally is, but none the worse for that in its own way.”

A wreath laying ceremony also went ahead at Coalsnaughton War Memorial with residents and veterans out in numbers.
