Bolton CND and Stop The War campaigns will be laying a wreath of white poppies at the ceremony in the Town Hall Square on Sunday. The tradition of laying a wreath of white poppies was started by some years ago by WW2 veteran and peace campaigner Bertie Lewis, who fought for many years for the right to do this in the official remembrance ceremony. It has become an important local tradition that is not replicated in many other places. Anyone who wishes to bear witness to the wreath laying should meet at Cook's in the square at 10.30. White poppies will also be available, price 50p.
