Renfrewshire Council

Remembrance 2021

Remembrance Day services returned to Renfrewshire for the first time since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, with parades and services taking place in towns and villages across the region.

On 14 November, parades and services were held across Renfrewshire to mark Remembrance Sunday and pay tribute to our Armed Forces past and present.

For those who were unable to attend a service in person, Renfrewshire Council commissioned an update to the film 'Renfrewshire Reflects' which was released in the absence of in-person Remembrance events in 2020. The video, featuring representatives from communities across Renfrewshire and focusing on the importance of Remembrance, aired on the council's social media channels to tie in with the national two-minute silence.

In addition to the video, this years Remembrance Day podcast highlights the work of PoppyScotland to celebrate 100 years of the Poppy as the national symbol of Remembrance. Landmarks across Renfrewshire have also been lit in red to mark the occasion.
