A Nations Tribute at Owd Martha’s Yard Hoyland’s Community Garden.
11/11/18 will be the 100 years anniversary of the ending of the First World War.
Up and down the country beacon fires will be lit, just like they did 100 years ago to symbolise the light and hopes of peace.
Hoyland did have a beacon, so volunteers at Owd Martha’s have successfully crowd funded and commissioned local artists Alex Dodson to design and make the beacon.
So when the sun goes down we will remember them. Last post to be at 6.55. The lighting of the beacon 7.00 and at 7.05 church bells will peel.
After the bells stop ringing we are to go the near by Belmont Club to entertained by Jayne Darling a vintage will perform War time classic’s. Funds raised on the night to be donated to Hoyland Branch of the Royal British Legion.
