Poppies were worn with pride as Clitheroe remembered its fallen of two world wars and all conflicts since.

Veterans of the armed forces, together with local dignitaries, local clergy, Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans, members of the public and, significantly, lots of young people gathered at the war memorial in the Castle grounds to pay their respects. It followed a parade from Clitheroe Parish Church, led by Clitheroe Town Band and watched by a large crowd of onlookers.

As well as observing two minutes’ silence, a large number of wreaths were laid at the memorial on behalf of the many and varied organisations in and around Clitheroe.
