Tribute to the Millions - 11th November 2018
Let us remember those who so selflessly gave their
lives at home and abroad, whose
sacrifice enables us to enjoy the
peace and freedom we have today.
A big Thank You to Denise, Tanya and Christine who handmade the poppies for the
Cenotaph and to Mark Hough who lit the beacon at 7pm at Crag Nook Delph.
Thanks also to Chris Riley and Graham Thomas
Act of Remembrance
Sunday 11th November
Meet at St Thomas' Church at 10.45 am and walk together to the War Memorial
in the Park.
Friday 9th November, 10.50am at the War Memorial, Sutton Park
The beacon at Crag Nook Delph will be lit to commemorate -"Battle's Over - A Nation's Tribute and WW1 Beacons of Light" at 7pm on 11th November 2018.
7.00pm Battle’s Over - WWI Beacons of Light
Later that day, after darkness has fallen, more than 1,000 Beacons of Light will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, with the first of these Beacons being lit at Westminster Abbey, London, that evening.
This is a commemoration inspired by a comment made on 3rd August 1914 by Britain’s Foreign Minister, Sir Edward Grey. He was looking out of his office window at dusk as gas were being lit along London’s Mall when he remarked to a friend, “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.”
Our country was about to be plunged into the darkness of the First World War, and it would be four long years before Britain and Europe would again experience the light of peace.
In remembrance of the end of the war and the millions who were killed or came home dreadfully wounded, Beacons of Light will be lit around the country at 7pm on 11th November 2018.
The event will also commemorate the huge army of men and women on the home front who, often in dangerous and exhausting conditions, underpinned the war effort - keeping the wheels of industry turning and bringing home the harvests. The beacons will symbolise the light of hope that emerged from the darkness of war.
Officers will be in Sutton Park in the afternoon/evening of 27/9/18 offering crime
prevention advice & property marking.
Celebrating Sutton is an initiative that began with discussions involving some Sutton residents along with members of several key voluntary sector and statutory organisations including NYCC, NHS, Cross Hills Group Practice, Age UK, Carers’ Resource, Exclusively Inclusive and Yorkshire Housing. The purpose is to celebrate village life in Craven, beginning with Sutton, by focusing on what is strong about our community rather than what is wrong with it. We are looking at ways to bring people together to help reduce any feelings of loneliness and isolation and to promote wellbeing.
This questionnaire has been put together which we would love people who either live or work in Sutton to complete. We intend to use the information gained to highlight things that are already working in our community as well as finding ways together to improve things for our community as a whole and individuals who might feel lonely or isolated for any reason (be it mental ill-health, physical ill-health, older adulthood, disability, parenthood, shift work patterns, lack of work or meaningful opportunity, fear of crime, etc)
You can fill in this questionnaire anonymously but we would love to be able to make contact to look at how together we can do more of the good stuff and make improvements as needed.
