Parish Council News

Like so many other bodies in the current crisis, Denton PC was forced to cancel its normal two-monthly meeting due to be held last night, Tuesday 12th May.

However, the Council have produced a report on current issues etc. and this can be viewed on the Website.

The next meeting of the Council is due on July 14th.

75 Years On

Friday 8th May was the 75th anniversary of VE Day when the end of the Second World War in Europe was celebrated across the UK and beyond. Despite the Coronavirus Lockdown this was an important anniversary to be commemorated and Denton residents were determined to play their part.

A timetable of events, and a call for suitable red, white and blue decorations, was circulated. The celebrations were centred on 3 pm, when Prime Minister Churchill had announced the end of hostilities, with a suitable toast "For those that gave so much, we thank you”. Every household was then encouraged to hold a tea-party outside their houses and many did.

Naturally, many photographs of the event were taken. A small selection can be see on a Special Page on the website, together with a link to a larger collection of those taken by Lydia Sida Page.
