AN AFTERSCHOOL group for kids took its youngsters to pay their respects to the fallen ahead of Armistice Day last weekend.

The team at Radnor Park out-of-school care visited the war memorial at Clydebank Town Hall on Thursday, November 9 to allow the children to honour those who lost their lives during conflict.

The excursion was the culmination of the community hub actively chatting with young service users to enable them to learn more about Armistice Day, Remembrance Sunday, the two-minute silence and why people wear a poppy.

And manager Tracy Pauley explained the youngsters took the importance of remembrance very seriously.

She told the Clydebank Post: “Recently, we have been having lots of discussions about Remembrance Sunday, Armistice Day and how and why we show respect.

“We also have discussions about why we wear the poppy and what this means.

“We have been involving the children in lots of chats about their relatives from military backgrounds and we have been talking about our local community and what we can do to help each other.”

The group were donated a beautiful wreath to lay at the memorial by Clydebank Co-op Funeral Directors.

The children also worked hard as a team to write a poem to accompany the wreath, a poem Tracy said the group were extremely ‘proud of.’
