ON A cold, crisp morning, residents, armed forces and dignitaries came together to remember those who gave their lives for the country.

A parade led by the 22nd Prestwich Scout Group marched from the Longfield Suite off Rectory Lane to the war memorial in St Mary’s Road in front of the PADOS building.

A two minutes silence was observed and poppy wreaths were laid by attendees including the Scouts and Guides, the Fusiliers, emergency services and Bury South MP Ivan Lewis.

Photographer Phil Taylor captured the event for us.
