2014-11-09 – Whitwell Remembers

More people than I’ve seen in 10 years of living in Whtiwell turned out today to pay their respects in the glorious sunshine.

The parade this year started at Hodthorpe Club and came up Welbeck Street and down hangar Hill in to The Square, led as usual by Whitwell Brass Band.

It doesn't seem like twelve months since we were last posting pictures of Whitwell's wonderful remembrance service, but alas it is.

I know we say the same each year, but it really is fantastic to see how many people turn out to pay their respects to those who gave their lives for our freedom.

In case you couldn't make it, then we have the pleasure of sharing our photos (although we apologise as they're not up to standard of previous years).

Whitwell Remembers – 13th November 2011

Once again Whitwell young and old alike came out in numbers to remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  Approximately 250 paid their respects at the service of remembrance held at the war memorial in The Square despite the grey and damp conditions.

We apologise for the quality of some of the photos – it seems that lenses don’t like being dropped in the woods, even on to soft piles of leaves :(
