Below is a message from Mr Tito Arana, Parish Councillor


As this year marks the 100 years since the armistice of World War 1, we have a really big opportunity to make this day very special to remember all service men who have fought to defend our country and maintain our way of life, but also to remember all the service men who have fought and made the ultimate sacrifice from our village, 

Last year a number of wreaths were laid, scouts, brownies, Lees School, The Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council, The Friends of Cross Roads Park and some wreaths laid by family members.

It would be absolutely fantastic if we could fill the entire section where the memorial stands this year with wreaths.

Laying a family wreath is a fantastic way paying your respects and making the younger generation aware of what sacrifices have been made.

Please buy your wreath from the poppy shop in Keighley (£18.99 each) 

I would also love to hear from any of the relatives of the following

It would be truly wonderful if you know any relation to let them know, I would be honoured if they would lay a wreath in memory of their relation. 

Please let’s do this one thing. Let’s do something incredible for our village
