There is a plant sale at 11am on Saturday 23 May in Warley village centre. This is a fundraiser for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
We hold a short service around the village lantern each Remembrance Sunday. Many of you have asked about having our own memorial stone. We made enquiries and received several quotes. In addition, we spoke to Calderdale Bereavement Service management. Having visited the site, they have agreed to supply and fix to our specification, a lettered memorial stone at no cost to us. We expect the memorial stone to be placed during May.
The memorial stone will read as follows.
LEST WE FORGET
THE GALLANT PEOPLE OF
WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES
FOR THEIR COUNTRY
IN CONFLICTS AROUND THE WORLD
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
