We will remember them

Services were held across the Dales yesterday for Remembrance Sunday.

On Remembrance Sunday there was an act of Remembrance at the War memorial in the Marketplace in Leyburn, organised and led by members of the Leyburn and District branch of the Royal British Legion.  Wreaths were laid and tributes given to those who fell in not only the two world wars but also the more recent conflicts. There was a small ceremony to commemorate 100 years of the Leyburn and District branch of the Royal British Legion.  

The remembrance service took place at Settle Parish Church followed by the procession down to the cenotaph for the laying of wreaths and the Act of Remembrance. Refreshments, were served by the local scout group, afterwards at the St. Johns Methodist Church.

Bainbridge Parish Council laid a wreath at the war memorial on Remembrance Sunday. 

Large crowds attended the annual Remembrance Sunday parade and service in Skipton.  The parade left Bunkers Hill at 10.30 for wreath laying at the cenotaph and then a service in the Parish Church.
