Whaley Bridge remembers the Fallen

There were large congregations at memorial  services in Whaley Bridge on Remembrance Sunday, 14 November.  The Rev Michael Peat, chaplain to the local branch of the Royal British Legion, conducted both services: the first in Holy Trinity church, the other round the Cenotaph n Whaley Bridge’s Memorial Park.  The church was packed for a service attended by local councillors, members of many local organisations, some with flags and wreaths that were received at the altar by Rev Peat.  The service at the Cenotaph, although short, was very moving.  Whaley Band member Daniel Sergeant, 15, played the Last Post at each service.  His colleague, Cara Wheelsdon.  13,  played the Last Post at war memorials in Furness Vale and Bridgemont.

Royal British Legion officials: at The Cross, near the Jodrell: Sue Cox, John Cooke, vice chairman, Jenny Woodward, women's chairman, Les Cox, treasurer and Rev Michael Peat.
