FROM November 9 to 11, the communities making up Tameside will be holding services and ceremonies to mark Remembrance Sunday.
Cllr Leigh Drennan, the Civic Mayor of Tameside, said: “On Remembrance Sunday we have the opportunity to remember the men and women who gave their lives for their country in the two world wars and other conflicts.
“We remember not only those who came from Tameside and the UK, but also the hundreds of thousands from the many parts of empire and commonwealth across the globe.
