Remembrance Services held throughout the Borough to commemorate the Fallen

Remembrance Services have taken place across Mid and East Antrim at the weekend to commemorate those who lost their lives in both World Wars and other conflicts.


Remembrance Services were held in the Borough’s towns of Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Larne, with poignant ceremonies being held in Whitehead, Broughshane, Cullybackey, Glynn, Kells and Connor, and Ballycarry.


Poppy wreaths were laid on behalf of Council at each of the locations.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, Alderman Noel Williams, said:

“It is my honour as Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, as well as a former Royal Air Force officer, to take part in Remembrance Services for those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.


“This is an emotional time for many and our thoughts are with them. The sacrifices made for us all must never be forgotten.”

Wellington Street, Ballymena.


The Mayor added:

“I encourage everyone to show their support to the Royal British Legion by backing the annual Poppy Appeal.


“Money raised is used to provide financial, emotional and social support to those who have served, or are currently serving, in the Armed Forces, and their families.


“I thank all those who volunteer their time to the fundraising campaign locally across our Borough.”
