Welcome to Holme Valley Parish Council
‘Holme Valley Remembers’
4 August 2014 marked the 100th Anniversary of Britain entering the First World War, which claimed the lives of millions of people across the globe. The War had a tremendous impact on the lives of everyone, including many residents of the Holme Valley who were left behind. The War continued until 11 November 1918 (Armistice Day).
On Tuesday, 5 August 2014, a ceremony was held in the grounds of Holme Valley Memorial Hospital; organised by the community of the Holme Valley, this ceremony is the first of many to remember all those who fought and gave their lives in the War.
The Parish Council is organising its own event, over the weekend of Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th September 2014. This will include a fly past, parades, military band displays and re-enactments, focusing on the impact the War had on not only the young soldiers who went to war, but their families left behind who had no idea what was to happen over the ensuing four years. Watch this space for further details, as they are announced.
