“The council is committed to supporting the armed forces community and this year is particularly special as we acknowledge 100 years since the First World War.

“I will attend the Ince ceremony this year and hope to see many members of the public showing their support too borough-wide.”

Community groups and councillors have also been involved in projects to install willow statues, benches and memorial gardens in memory of those who served their country.
