Dronfield and Killamarsh Remebrance Day

im2age (448 x 600)Every year Remembrance Day parades and services become bigger and more towns and villages commemorate the First World War. This year was particularly important as it is the 100th anniversary since the start of World War One.

The Salvation Army Band and the St John Ambulance Brigade Cadet Band provided music and led the parade from School Lane to the War Memorial.

Revd Dr Peter Bold delivered a moving service and read the names of the local men and women who had died in the First and Second World Wars.
More than 40 groups and individuals laid a wreath and it was wonderful to see so many young people paying their respects.

i1mage (448 x 600)I also took part in Killamarsh’s Remembrance Day in the afternoon.
The event was very well attended and people were lining the streets as the parade made its way from Sheepcote Road to the War Memorial.
After we had laid our wreaths, the parade continued to St Giles Church for a beautiful service of remembrance.

The afternoon concluded with the now traditional 1940s afternoon tea in the Church Hall, with music by Adrian Wood and the Dronfield Brass Band.
