11th Hour of 11th Day of 11th Month
    Saturday 11th November 2023
      - Remembrance Day Service

  Our Normanby Local History Group is organising a Remembrance Day Service on Saturday the 11th November 2023 at the Normanby Great War Memorial (corner of High Street & West Street).
  Those wishing to participate should assemble at the Normanby War Memorial at 10:50am.
  Reverend David Godfrey M.A. (Methodist Superintendent Minister) will lead the service.   This year’s Standard Bearer is Eric Taylor and piper Phil Meadows will be in attendance.   As it is a Saturday no organised groups of children from local schools will be taking part this year.
  A member of our Normanby Local History Group will lead the laying of wreaths.   Others will then have the opportunity to place their own personal poppy.
  After the concluding prayer Phil Meadows the piper & Reverend David Godfrey will lead us to the new Remembrance Garden in Cleveland Street for the laying of more wreaths and personal poppies.
   All may then proceed to Normanby Methodist Church for refreshments.
