Remembrance Day always falls on the 11th November with Remembrance Sunday being held on the nearest Sunday. As a nation we remember those who died in the two world wars and in any conflict since.
Remembrance Day is always observed at St James’ Catholic Primary School with a beautiful service in the school hall including a minutes silence, appropriate readings and prayers and the Last Post, usually played by one of our own brass teachers. It is always a beautiful and moving occasion and we are always surrounded by our poppy based art work. In 2020 when we couldn’t gather we displayed our work outside in the Peace Garden. took it in turns to visit and had a facebook live service of remembrance that everyone watched on their screens.
Hattersley Brass Band are also honoured to play at the Remembrance Sunday Service at the cenotaph on Werneth Low each year.
