Ponteland remembers

Remembrance Sunday Ponteland Nov 10 2013
Hundreds of Ponteland residents gathered at the village war memorial for the annual Service of Remembrance.

The short service was led by the Reverend Peter Barham, assisted by Father Seamus O’Kane. Bryony Gibson, Deputy Lord Lieutenant of the County, laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen, followed by Peter Cowey, Mayor of Ponteland, who laid a wreath on behalf of Ponteland, then our MP Guy Opperman.

Dozens more wreaths were laid on behalf of the Armed Forces, and the many village organisations including the Rotary Club, Lions, Memorial Hall, Senior Gentleman’s Club, Tennis and Bowling Clubs, Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Girl Guides Brownies and Boys’ Brigade.

Members of Northumbria Army Cadet Force’s Ponteland Detachment marched proudly with their impressive new standard, which was mainly funded by a Town Council grant.
