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.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
