News & Events
Hathersage Remembers, Remembrance Sunday 2019
ARMISTICE PARADE SUNDAY NOVEMBER 10TH.
As usual Hathersage Parade will assemble at 09.30 in the main village carpark, ready to march off at 10.00. The service in the Parish Church starts at 10.30 under the guidance of Rev Julian Barker, retired Repton vicar.
Following the British Legion, the parade will include members of the Cadet Force of Mount St Mary’s College, Spinkhill, Hathersage Guides, Scouts, Brownies, Cubs and Beavers. We would really appreciate it if members of other organisations would like to join in the parade. They do not need to have served in the armed forces.
After the service and laying of wreaths, the parade will reform at the Scotsman’s Pack Inn to march back to the carpark. Participants are welcome afterwards to come together with British Legion members when they sojourn at the Scotsmans Pack Inn.
The parade will involve rolling closures of Station Road, Main Road, and School Lane, between 09.55 to 10.20, and 11.20 and 1150. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
ABOUT THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION POPPY APPEAL.
The Legion remains the principal charity organisation formed to support ex-service men and women, or their families, with whatever needs they may have, and particularly those who suffered injuries.
To pay for this our main fundraising effort is of course the annual Poppy Appeal. We hope you will support our branch’s efforts this year, in whatever way you can. Our Poppy Appeal Organiser would still welcome any new volunteers willing to help sell poppies.
You can also support by becoming a member of the Legion, even if you have not served in the armed forces.
TREASURER. YOUR BRANCH NEEDS YOU.
After several valuable years Tom Crooks is resigning as our treasurer, so a volunteer is needed please, to take over this position. The job involves keeping records of income and expenditure normally of less than five hundred pounds annually. The Poppy Appeal and Members’ subscriptions are dealt with elsewhere, and so are not part of this work.
Hathersage Branch has shown its fundraising skills by once again improving on its Poppy Appeal total.
Hathersage Branch does it yet again. In 2018 we raised £6,323.74 passing the previous year’s total, which, at £4,667.71, was itself a record. Thank you all the people of Hathersage who have been so generous again.
Anyone interested in helping in the next Poppy Appeal should contact our PAO (Poppy Appeal Organiser): Julie on 01433 650104, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
