To commemorate this year’s Remembrance Sunday, Cheshire’s Anderton Boat Lift will hold a service and release a cascade of poppy petals on November 10.
The service begins at 10.30am and the poppy cascade will take place at 11am. There is no charge to enter the Anderton Boat Lift’s site, owned by the Canal & River Trust charity, and be part of this commemoration.
The Remembrance Day service commemorates those who died in war and will be held by the banks of the River Weaver at the base of the Lift. The short service will include readings and prayers from Rev Neal Stanton and will end with the solemn bugle salute sounding the Last Post as thousands of poppies are released from the top of the 50ft Lift.
Visitors can buy refreshments in the Lift View Marquee and the Lift’s Treetop Coffee Shop will be selling food.
