Remembrance and Memorial Days

Following recent coverage, a spokesman for Sefton Council said: “In no way are we scrapping Remembrance Day Services across the borough.

The services are an important way to enable us to remember those who died in conflict and will continue to be held.

“Changes to our current Mayoral Services are just one of a number of proposals being discussed as the authority looks to make savings of just under £44 million over the next two years.     “If approved, the role of the Mayor of Sefton will change, however we will continue to support events like Remembrance Sunday and Holocaust Memorial Day and work closely with our partner agencies.     “This was first discussed last year and consultation with the regional Royal British Legion and organisers of the Holocaust Memorial Day was held informing them of the proposals.   “We also reassured them that while we were looking at a partnership approach, we would always fulfil our commitment to both services.”
