The annual Remembrance parade and Church service will be taking place in Hathersage on Sunday 13th November and will follow the usual format.

Parade participants should congregate adjacent to the Oddfellows Road car park from 09.30, ready to march off at 10.00. The parade, organised on behalf of the Hathersage Parish Council by Hathersage British Legion, will be led by Hope Valley Drum Line, followed by Legion members, contingents from Hathersage Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, Hathersage firemen, Hope Valley St John Ambulance volunteers and, of course, Army and Air Force cadets from Mount St Mary’s College, Spinkhill.

This impressive body will follow the route down Station Road, up Main Road, along School Lane and then up to the Parish Church. During the march-past, both up to the Church and returning after the service, Hathersage Band will be playing in the ‘Heart for Hathersage’ village centre area. Tom Wain will be organising the marshals to close off the roads to traffic, where necessary.

This year we are offering a free mini-bus service to take people from the Hathersage Business Centre up to the Church and return them afterwards. Parking is available at the Centre. This will be on a ‘pre-booked’ time-slot basis only. Anyone wanting to take advantage of this should make arrangements by emailing: or telephone 01433 650388, no later than 12.00 noon on 12th November.

The Church service, led by Curate Rev Charlotte Wallington, will commence at 10.30, during which wreaths will be laid on the War Memorial inside the Church, and afterwards on the War Graves outside. All sixteen graves commemorating others, who lost their lives in various conflicts, will have a wooden cross placed on them by the Beaver Scouts.

After the return of the parade to the War Memorial Hall, all participants and helpers will again be welcome to join the Legion at the Scotsman’ Pack Inn.
