It nearly didn’t happen, but after frantic lobbying and a lot of sweat, the police agreed to accompany the procession from St Peter’s Church, across the busy A630 Sheffield Road to a short service and wreath laying at the cenotaph in Guest Lane Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday 14th November 2021
Pictured here are members of the Parish Council having laid a wreath on behalf of the Parish.
Many thanks to those who were involved especially given the very short notice of the procession and ceremony.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them"

CHILDRENS PLAY AREA - KING GEORGE FIELD
It is hoped that this will be re-opened on a trial basis from around the end of November - we apologise to all innocent users of these facilities. The Council has secured funding for CCTV monitors in that area of the park to protect the facilities - more news on progress will be placed here.
