REMEMBRANCE DAY STORY

REMEMBRANCE DAY STORY

For 70 years the war memorial in The Square has had the wrong name on it. It said George Woodgate instead of Edward Woodgate. When Olive Sutcliffe started doing some research into the Second World War names she discovered that the name was wrong and contacted the son, also Edward, to find out why.

As a result the parish council has had the name changed and Edward Woodgate laid a wreath on Remembrance Sunday for his father. The service followed the usual format: the procession forming up at the Red Lion and walking to the war memorial for the Act of Remembrance.

Pictured (left to right) are Parish Council representatives Jason Debney and David Fox, next to Edward Woodgate and his wife Shirley. Helen Sheppard, also a parish councillor, is on the far right.
