Whaley Cenotaph service back after two year gap

Whaley Bridge people renewed their link to the Cenotaph in Memorial Park, which could not be used for the last two Remembrance Sundays because of a major refurbishment.

Local organisations, including the Royal British Legion, placed wreaths on the memorial, later admired by many people.

The Rev Margaret Jones, priest in charge of the parish of Whaley Bridge, conducted the service. Earlier she had told congregations at other services of her moving visit to the ceramic poppies display at the Tower of London.

Kettleshulme remembers at village Memorial Hall

One of the smaller gatherings in the area was at Kettleshulme. The village’s dead of two wars are commemorated outside the Memorial Hall. The Rev Keith Sandow, minister of Whaley Bridge Uniting Church Partnership, read their names and Laurie Walton, principal cornet player of Whaley Bridge Band, played the Last Post.
