Parades, services and displays will take place across the Hemsworth and South Elmsall area on Sunday to remember those who have died for their country.

South Elmsall Royal British Legion (RBL) has launched its appeal for donations to help raise money for armed forces veterans during this year’s poppy appeal.

Gil Harrison, chairman of the South Elmsall RBL branch, said: “I am extremely proud and pleased to be the chairman of the branch and to come in at a time which is so important to the Royal British Legion.

“The launch was very well attended by local dignitaries and members of the public and I hope people will support us to help armed forces veterans.”

A Hemsworth business owner has decorated her shop window to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Carol Dawson, owner of Distant Memories on Station Road, has dressed her shop window with poppies, pictures of fallen soldiers and a commemorative flag.

She said: “I wanted to do a memorial window to bring the community together.

“It started off with people bringing things into the shop then I thought how wonderful would it be for the window to be filled with poppies.”

South Elmsall’s annual remembrance service and parade will start from the United Services Club on Chapel Lane at 10.40am and travel to the cenotaph on Barnsley Road where there will be a service and two minutes’ silence at 11am.

The parade will then march to St Mary’s Church on Doncaster Road where a service will be held at 11.45am. After the service the parade will march back to the United Services Club.

Marchers will also gather at Hemsworth Community Centre on Bullenshaw Road at 9.30am on Sunday before a service at St Helen’s Church on Station Road.
