The parade was headed by veterans and young representatives from the cadets, scouts and guides – and watched by the Mayor and Mayoress of St Helens Councillors Dave Banks and Jeanette Banks, acting Council Leader Andy Bowden, St Helens South MP Marie Rimmer, councillors and civic guests.

St Helens North MP Conor McGinn joined Deputy Mayor of St Helens Councillor Joe Pearson, Earlestown and Newton ward councillors, civic guests and large crowds outside Earlestown Town Hall for a Remembrance Day service and wreath laying ceremony involving both current and ex-service personnel.
