Heywood Remembrance Sunday 2021
Thousands of people paid their respects to those who died serving their country at the Remembrance Sunday service in the Memorial Gardens in Heywood on Sunday 14 November.
The parade set off from Tower Street through Heywood town centre along Market Street and Market Place to Heywood Memorial Gardens.
The Exhortation was read: "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them."
The Last Post was played and a two minutes silence was solemnly observed.
Wreaths were laid by veterans, Mayoress Rifit Rashid, local councillors, churches, schools, scout groups, girl guides, the emergency services, businesses and many other local groups.
The Blessing and the National Anthem closed the service, before the parade marched from Hind Hill Street to Hornby Street and along LCpl Stephen Shaw MC Way in front of the Civic Centre.
