A beautiful Remembrance Day parade and service today (10/11/19) in Glossop, with the war memorial and and Norfolk Square decorated with hand knitted poppies, and a huge turnout of people. Made even better by hearing the Town Hall clock striking once more.
Thank you to everyone across High Peak who has helped to make today so special and to show that we value the sacrifice that was made, and is still being made, for our peace and freedom.
In the run up to remembrance Sunday, I took the opportunity to help selling poppies at Whaley Bridge on the morning of the 8th of November. Apparently I attract more custom than usual to the stall which is good to hear! And Whaley Bridge Memorial Park is looking beautiful in preparation for Sunday. It’s a shame the full replacement cross is not ready in time, but I understand the stone is with the stone mason but it’s a big job in every sense.
Thank you to everyone who’s helping to decorate all our memorials. It’s lovely to see them proving that our collective memory is not fading – we will remember them.
