A remembrance parade and service scheduled to take place in Cathedral Square in Fortrose on November 8 has been cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Organisers say that those who made the ultimate sacrifice in both World Wars and conflicts since then will be remembered at a "low-key" wreath-laying ceremony at the war memorial.

Door-to-door poppy collections on the Black Isle won't take this place this year either. However many shops in Avoch, Cromarty, Culbokie, Fortrose and Munlochy will have poppies available.

The Poppy Appeal can also be supported at the Justgiving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ao-fortrose
