A civic service of remembrance was held in Berwick Parish Church. Numbers were restricted due to Covid-19 precautions but the service was broadcast to people watching outside.

Berwick Pipe Band then led a parade to the Castlegate war memorial where a call to remembrance and prayers were read by Rev Canon Dennis Handley and Rev Dr Adam Hood.

The Last Post and a two minute silence was immaculately observed before wreaths were laid on the war memorial steps.
