WWI Commemoration 11/11/2018

WWI Commemoration took place at Cotton Village on 11th November 2018, marking 100 years since the end of WW1. It was an overwhelming turn out for Parish with over 100 parishioners attending the WWI Commemoration to pay their respects to the fallen. There was a service in the morning, which was attended by over 80 parishioners, followed by over 100 for the lighting of the Beacon. Refreshments were then provided at ‘The Cross Inn’ Cauldon Lowe. 

As part of the Commemoration, the children of ‘The Faber Primary School’, and ‘Waterhouses Primary School, participated in a project and submitted there artwork which was judged by Cllr. Mike Worthington and his wife. (see pictures in Gallery). This was followed by a Raffle which £1000 was raised towards the costs of the WWI Commemoration and donations towards 2 charities.
