Bakewell Remembers

The 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 is fast approaching, and several events are planned to commemorate this centenary, in Bakewell.

At 11am on Saturday 10th November, a short service will be held at the WW2 memorial in Bath Gardens. The Last Post will be sounded, and wreaths will be laid. This is followed by the unveiling of a special commemorative bench, in the Memorial Garden at the Bath Street end of Bath Gardens. This bench has been paid for through kind donations from members of the public. This is a very special bench, unlike any other in the town. More »

Following the unveiling of the bench, members of the Royal British Legion and anyone else wishing to attend, will go to Bakewell Cemetery on Yeld Road. Here there are 13 graves of men who died in, or as a result of wounds, in both world wars. Wreaths will be laid on all 13 graves as a sign of respect.

Then at 7pm that same day there will be a concert by the Bakewell Silver Band at Bakewell Town Hall. Last years concert was a great success and this years will be something not to be missed. The bar will be open, and a fantastic raffle will be held. Tickets are available from Bakewell Pet Supplies on Water Street, at just £5 per ticket.

On Sunday 11th November the annual Remembrance events will take place. Much planning has gone into this years event, and it will be very special.

The parade will form up on Market Street at 10.45am to march into the Square for 11am, to form up around the memorial. At 11am the town will fall silent to remember all those who lost their lives for us a hundred years ago.

Bakewell band will then lead the parade via the Bakewell Memorial Nursing Home, to Bakewell Parish Church, where a very special service will be held. This will be something very special, and a once in a 100 year event. Refreshments will be served afterwards in the Newark. A community transport bus will ferry anyone needing transport from the square to church.

This is a very special year and everyone in Bakewell is very welcome to come along to show their respects. It should be the largest Remembrance Parade ever seen in the town.
