Remembrance Parade 2018 – Sunday 11th November 2018

Posted on November 6th, 2018 by Webmaster

Once again we have been invited to join with the people of Hunsworth, East Bierley & Birkenshaw to come together to mark remembrance Sunday.

This is the day when people who have lost their lives in conflicts and wars all over the world are remembered, but this year is special because 2018 commemorates 100 years since the end of world war 1.

Please meet in the yard in front of Birkenshaw Church at 09:50 am, to parade to the memorial garden at East Bierley for a memorial service, followed by a two minutes silence at 11:00 am,

Parents and families are welcome to join us in the parade.

All members – wear smart uniform please, if you do not have official uniform trousers please wear school uniform type trousers.
It is likely to be cold so you should wear a warm coat (waterproof if wet) and perhaps a T-Shirt or similar under your uniform top.

Members should be collected from East Bierley at about 11:15 am.

Your Attendance would be much appreciated.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Christine Dawson

Christine has been at the heart of the 11th Spen Valley for the past 40 years, first in the role of Akela and then as the group treasurer

She was highly thought of and will be deeply missed

Our thoughts go out to Paul and Alistair and their families.

Funeral arrangements will be posted as soon as we have them.
