Planned Events

11th Hour of 11th Day of 11th Month
    Sunday 11th November 2018
      - Remembrance Day Service

  On that special day it will be 100 years since World War One came to an end after so many years of death, injury, suffering & destruction.
  Our Normanby Local History Group is organising a short Remembrance Day Service on Sunday the 11th November 2018 at the Normanby Great War Memorial (corner of High Street & Cleveland Street).
  For this very special occasion we hope for a good attendance of those wishing to pay their respects to the brave men from Normanby who lost their lives during WW1.
  Please assemble at the Normanby War Memorial at 10:50am.
  Our local chapel minister Reverend Christopher Wood-Archer will lead the service.
  The police will not be providing officers this year so volunteers will be managing the traffic and crowd.
  After the service participants will be provided with refreshments at Normanby Methodist Church where a display of memorabilia of the World Wars will be set up by our group.
  This will include photos and stories of those recorded on our Normanby war memorial.
  But the display is also intended to include information about those men and women of Normanby that served in any war - including those who returned safely home.
  If you have any relevant photos, artefacts, stories or medals that may be used in this display then please contact us  !
  Special thanks is due to Tom Towers (Normanby LHG Honorary President) who continues after many years to be the main drive to ensure success of the Normanby Service of Remembrance.
