Remembrance service at War Memorial Nov 11

The annual village Remembrance Service will take place on Sunday 11 November at 12 noon at the War Memorial on Whitegate. Everyone is welcome at the open air service which remembers all those killed in the two world wars and more recent conflicts. A British Legion bugler will sound The Last Post at the end of the traditional two minute silence. The World Wars have a special resonance in the village which lost one in seven of its able bodied men and whose sacrifice is marked by an avenue of memorial lime trees in Crabtree Lane
