OTLEY:

Remembrance Day this month marks the 100th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in WWI and many Otley residents and friends of the town have gone out of their way to commemorate the event.

Local group Knit and Natter have coordinated the creation of 16,000 hand-crafted poppies - 2,000 more than their original appeal - to mark Remembrance Day and these form the heart of a beautiful cascade at Otley Parish Church, as well as a display at the Memorial Garden.

A poppy trail links the church, the Memorial Garden and two newly installed There But Not There Tommy soldiers, silhouette statues created by the charity Remembered.

They are located across from the Post Office on the corner of Crossgate and Nelson Street.

Other Remembrance-related activities include:

Saturday November 10 - In the early evening there will be a quarter-peal (45 minutes) of the church bells in honour of those who perished.

Sunday November 11 -

6am: Otley will be taking part in Battle's Over, an occasion that will see more than 1,300 pipers around the world playing When the Battle's O'er.

Pre-10am: A half-muffled commemorative ringing of the bells before the 10am service.

12.30pm: An open ringing in celebration of Armistice.

7.05pm: Otley Bellman Terry Ford will be reciting A Cry For Peace Around The World; a cry that will be mirrored by some 140 other town criers around the country.
