A MEMORIAL garden in Haydock is set to host its first Remembrance Sunday event.

The Haydock Remembrance Garden in Penny Lane was opened at the end of last year and is a joint venture between local councillors and the Haydock and Ashton Rotary club. Match funded by the Councillor Improvement Fund, the garden is being maintained by the rotary club.

A service and ceremony will take place in the garden at 3pm on Sunday 8 November, involving community groups and local organisations. A limited number of places will also be available for members of the public who wish to pay their respects.

Haydock councillor Jeanette Banks said: “This will be the first time the garden has been able to host a Remembrance Sunday event and will be a proud moment.”
