A traditional Remembrance Day service will return to Tranent and Elphinstone this year, for the first time since 2019.

Plans for the event were discussed at a meeting of Tranent and Elphinstone Community Council on August 10.

The easing of coronavirus restrictions in Scotland earlier this month, which saw social gathering numbers and social distancing measures scrapped, means many community events can go ahead.

Last year, many Remembrance events in East Lothian were heavily scaled back.

In Tranent and neighbouring Elphinstone, a wreath was laid at both war memorials on behalf of the community.

There was no parade and no service, and residents were asked to observe the two minutes’ silence on their doorsteps, rather than gather at the war memorials.

Unless restrictions return, the annual event will see its usual features take place once again, including the march, parade, service and a gathering of residents paying their respects.

There will be a lone piper in Elphinstone.

Poppies ordered by the local community council are set to be delivered to schools and businesses in October.
