Remembrance Sunday 2020

8 Nov 2020, 1:15 a.m.

There was a small gathering at Waberthwaite War Memorial on this Remembrance Sunday to remember men from Waberthwaite and Corney parishes. 

The names engraved on the memorial were read out, and this year, for the first time, we included those who lost their lives, but whose names are not recorded there. We now know the moving stories of these 15 men.
