Maybole remembered its war dead with two services last week. On Thursday November 11 at 11am there was the traditional two minutes silence during a service led by Rev Arrick Wilkinson. This service was attended by the Maybole Branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland and several other local organisations and all schools. On Remembrance Sunday, November 14, there was an ecumenical church service in the West church building led by Rev Douglas Moore. The service began at 10am with Robert Malone and William Milligan carried the colours of the Royal British Legion Scotland and the Union Flag into the church to be received by the minister.
