Remembrance and Poppy Appeal
Clowne is a village which still has a good sense of community and nothing demonstrates this more than when the village comes together in November on Remembrance Sunday for the annual Parade and Service to honour the war dead whose names appear on the Cenotaph in the heart of the village.
Over 400 people attend the Service at the Cenotaph and over 30 wreaths are laid at its base. This is as many wreaths as a large town such as Chesterfield would lay and the turnout is remarkable for a village.
Also the people of Clowne and Barlborough (this is the British Legion collection area) have given an increasing amount to the British Legion Poppy Appeal each year despite difficult economic times.
This website is to give you information about both the Remembrance Service with pictures from some years back and about the local Poppy Appeal.
