In addition to the normal Remembrance Sunday event there is a huge "community effort” which involves creating an “Installation” in the centre of Hathersage which will be put in place on 15 October.
This piece was written by the installation creator, Bernard Madden:
"A newly created and distinctive memorial to mark the centenary of the ending of WW1 has been created for the centre of the Peak District village of Hathersage. It references the trenches which were such a major and continuous feature of the Great War, bringing to life the horrors of such long and ghastly trench warfare. 101 exquisite hand crafted poppies line the two trenches to remember the 101 who died in conflict from this village and surrounding hamlets. Surrounding it all in the landscaping are poppies made by each child in the village primary school"

A Commemoration of the Armistice of November 11th 1918 entitled ‘At The Going Down Of The Sun’ is to be presented on the evenings of this November 10th & 11th in Hathersage War Memorial Hall. Details of this and how to obtain tickets are on this flyer.
Details and history of the several hundred service personnel from the Hathersage district, who served during WW1, can be found on the website Hathersage Remembers and Derbyshire War Memorials - Hathersage.
Two booklets giving details of many of the people from Hathersage who served in WW1, can be obtained from Hathersage Craft Shop, Main Road, Hathersage, S32 1EH., or via the branch secretary.

Hathersage Branch has shown its fundraising skills by once again improving on its Poppy Appeal total.
In 2017 it topped £3,800.00 passing the previous year’s total, which, at £2,859.00, was itself a record, by some £900. Thank you all the people of Hathersage who have been so generous again.
