MEMBERS of the armed services will be honoured at a flag raising ceremony in Eastwood park this week.

The event takes place outside East Renfrewshire council headquarters on Monday, as part of the Armed Forces Day events.

Former and current service men and woman will present the colours at the ceremony, from 10am.

There, money raised by the council earlier this year through a variety show – supported by the Newton Mearns branch Royal British Legion – will be presented to forces charity Helping Heroes.
