Tony said: “Remembrance Day is a time for Greater Manchester, and the nation, to come together and remember the men and women, and their families, who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. It’s a day to reflect on the past and the present and it will be an honour to stand with the people of Stockport to mark this solemn day and pay my respects.”

Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Jim Battle will attend the service and lay a wreath at Droylsden war memorial along with Tameside Council Leader Cllr Kieran Quinn, local councillors and residents.

“Remembrance Day is as important as ever as we remember those who gave their lives in the past and those who serve today,” said Jim. “I’m proud to stand and fall silent with the community of Droylsden this Sunday and I encourage people across Greater Manchester to also pay their respects by attending a ceremony or supporting the Royal British Legion by wearing a poppy.”
