Dronfield to commemorate First World War Centenary

This year commemorates one hundred years since the end of the First World War, which makes Sunday 11th November even more poignant. To mark the centenary there will be two events taking place in Dronfield that day.

The first is the annual Remembrance Day Parade and Service which will take place at the War Memorial in the Gardens outside Dronfield Library. Members of the public are invited to attend or follow the parade, which will begin on School Lane at 10:35am.

The second event is the lighting of the Beacon in Sindelfingen Park, which is part of national commemorations taking place that day. The event will begin at 6:30pm and the Beacon will be lit at 7pm, which will be followed by handbells ringing in the park and Church bells ringing in the town centre.

Local groups and organisations will be invited to send a representative to the events and members of the public are also welcome to attend. Further details will be announced closer to the date.
