    On a cold, crisp autumnal morning, some 200 people gathered at the Eccles Cenotaph to pay their respects, lay wreaths and individual poppies.

    Amongst the people there I was pleased to see some 25 Year Four children from Lewis Street, primary school, Patricroft under the guidance of Lizzie Dunn, who behaved impeccably throughout the service.

    The two minutes silence was observed with people deep in their own, private thoughts. for those who had made the ultimate sacrifice.

    Rod O' Connor was on duty and raised and lowered the Union Jack flag in what was quite a moving experience, hats off to him for attending, today.

    I saw many familiar faces in the crowd, both young and old and it is heartening to see so many people there, despite the official ceremony being this Sunday.

    Also I noticed amongst the tributes left on the base of the Cenotaph, there were several home made paper wreaths from the Manse Nursery in Eccles which I thought was a nice touch.

    We shall be there this Sunday to make a video of this years service and do a more in depth interview and write up.

    My thanks to all of you attended today, good to see you all.
