TILLICOULTRY gathered together for its biggest Remembrance Day commemorations in recent years to show support for the fallen.

Tillicoultry Parish Church held their service at 10.30am on Sunday, November 14, before making way for residents to join them in the procession.

The church observed a two minute silence at 11am and was joined by the likes of the deputy lord lieutenant and local councillors.

The procession set off from the church along Dollar Road and ended at the war memorial at Tillicoultry Cemetery where members of the church laid a wreath in remembrance.

Alison Britchfield, minister at the parish church, spoke of the whole town coming together for the procession.

She said: “We were joined by members and clergy from the Baptist Church and from the Church of the Good Shepherd.

“We paraded to the war memorial where we held an act of remembrance at 12pm.

“It was a great turn out at the memorial.”

Ewart McAuslane, treasurer of the Tillicoultry, Coalsnaughton and Devonside Community Council, said this year’s procession was the largest the town has seen for quite some time.

He added: “We had a lovely service and we were joined afterwards by members of the scouts, other churches and members of the public.

“It was as big a procession as I’ve seen in the time I’ve been here and it was a lovely day so we had a very big crowd walking with us.

“Members of each of the churches will read something out and then we all lay our wreaths down at the memorial.”
