Great support from the young

Have your say

The community of Mytholmroyd came out in full force to remember those who lost their lives in war (above). This was the first ceremony with the restored Memorial Soldier, which has completed the Mytholmroyd Memorial Garden project.

There was tremendous support from the young people of the area – Mytholmroyd uniformed groups, the Hebden Bridge Junior Band, the joint Primary Schools Choir and Calder High and Ravenscliffe Schools.

It is so important for our young people to realise the horror of war and, as the sermon stressed – take up the challenge of Peace.

After the service members of the congregation were offered copies of the Rememberance Book, produced by Jade Smith and supported by Royd Regeneration.

A big thank you to all involved who made this a memorable ceremony.
