Memorial Day

Despite some horrible weather earlier in the morning we had a fantastic turn-out for the Memorial service in the park on Sunday. 

The group met at 10:30am by the Wheatsheaf Road entrance and we marched in formation up through the park to the cross. 

The service was, as always, very humbling as we listened to the long list of names of the fallen. Heartbreaking to hear the same surnames repeated over and over again, you cannot imagine the pain some families must have endured. 

I am glad to report that the children were impeccably behaved and we received many compliments at the end of the service. Thanks to all those who attended.

UPDATE: You can see more photos on the Whaley Bridge site:
