News from Burwardsley as 'Burwardsley Remembers' ...

It is easy to overlook the sprawling hamlet of Burwardsley, tucked up on The Sandstone Ridge.

We have previously covered stories on 'POFFEE' should you wish to take in a coffee whilst out walking or cycling on The Ridge.

Similarly, the Art Hub and the Successfactory are fantastically successful local venues.

That said, the Church of St John the Divine is an architectural gem and we should not overlook the involvement of this sister Church to St Alban's and everything that they achieved during the Armistice Centenary commemorations.

Surviving relatives came from far and wide to witness the unveiling of the new 'Roll of Honour' within the Church. Delia Dutton (nee Dodd) spoke from the heart as she paid tribute to the men of Burwardsley who had died in conflict, her own relative John Joseph Bowker being one such casualty.

Attendance at the Remembrance Service exceeded all possible expectations and a staggering £385 was raised for The Royal British Legion during the collection.

The churchyard has also seen substantial improvements and additions during this period — the headstone of John Thomas Tydd has been completely refurbished by members of the Tydd family, a Commonwealth War Graves sign is now attached to the churchyard gate and Bolesworth Estate has kindly provided a new, glass-fronted lockable noticeboard which is a fantastic and welcome addition.

Bolesworth Estate was also in charge of 'The Beacon Lighting Ceremony' close-by — click on images to enlarge and click on beacon fire image to view the video clip.

Our thanks to everyone and for the wonderful refreshments in the Institute following the Remembrance Service.
