Centenary of Remembrance Services – Sun 14 Nov 1215
On 8th October 1921, a group of local dignitaries and clergy, led by Colonel Lane-Fox, met on Whitegate to unveil and dedicate the new War Memorial. Its £207 cost had been raised by public subscription and a specially convened War Memorial committee. The village had been hard hit by the Great War losing one in seven of its able-bodied men and war memorials were seen as a way to provide a place to remember those who had no grave.
Each Remembrance Sunday since then the Parish Council has held a short service there and this year will be the centenary of this event. HM The Queen will be represented by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire – Nick Lane-Fox – great grandson of Colonel Lane Fox.
All villagers are invited to the event will take place at 12 noon on Sunday 14th November.
