A REMEMBRANCE tree has been planted outside the Gibson Hall in Garelochhead as a tribute to those who fought during the First World War.

Provided by Garelochhead Station Trust people were encouraged to attach remembrance tokens as a tribute to loved ones, both past and present.

Forty-five tokens were attached over the course of two days.

Morevain Martin, the trust’s project co-ordinator, said: “So many things had to be cancelled this year and the opportunities for members of the community to support each other have been very limited.

“This event gave people the time and a safe space to reflect and remember whilst preserving those important memories and was supported by all age groups in the community.”

The tokens will now remain in a safe place before the tree is moved to Garelochhead railway station when the Trust is able to begin using the station building as its operational base.
