A REMEMBRANCE garden has been created in Huddersfield town centre to help people remember our war heroes.
An area at Market Place has been sectioned off so that people can lay poppy wreaths and crosses in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday this weekend.
The garden was opened on Saturday.
Mayor of Kirklees Clr Donald Firth laid a poppy wreath and then a service was conducted to commemorate those who have died in war.
Prayers were said and then, at 11am, a minute's silence was held.
The Rev Catherine Ogle, vicar of Huddersfield, attended the service.
She said: "We were honouring and remembering those who made a sacrifice and made our freedom today possible."
The event was organised by the Royal British Legion to launch its Poppy Appeal.
Money raised by selling paper poppies is spent on giving financial, social and emotional support to ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen who are in need.
