REMEMBRANCE Sunday at Musselburgh has been described as “a truly community event”.

Irene Tait, chairperson of Musselburgh & Inveresk Community Council, thanked all those who attended services and wreath-laying ceremonies to honour the armed forces members who have died in the line of duty.

On Remembrance Sunday, a parade, including civic leaders and uniformed organisations, made its way from the Old Town Hall in Musselburgh to a service at St Michael’s Parish Church, Inveresk.

Poppy wreaths were laid at the First World War memorial outside St Michael’s before the procession made its way to the Second World War memorial at The Mall in Musselburgh.

Deputy Lieutenant Lyn Marshall took the salute at Lewisvale Park.

Mrs Tait later said: “I would like to thank all who turned up and helped make this community memorial event successful.

“Special thanks to Deputy Lieutenant Lyn Marshall, Alastair Knowles, sea, air and army cadets, ministers from all churches, buglers, Musselburgh and Penicuik Pipe Band, local police on traffic control, Musselburgh Grammar School’s music department and Neil Wilson for arranging the sound and lectern.”

She also thanked local bakery Quinnsters for its donation of pies and staff at the Hollies Community Hub for their help with the tea, coffee and biscuits after the Musselburgh remembrance events.
