Stainton Remembers

 

Rememberance Sunday in Stainton.
Our new Commemorative Gates were blessed by Revd Chris Betson of St Winifrid's Church. The gates show our heritage link to 1914, when the First World War began, in which the village lost 5 brave fighting men (depicted by the 5 poppies), and the opening of Maltby Colliery (depicted by the colliery wheel). Stainton was originally going to be the pit village, but workers houses were built in Maltby instead.
The gates were made by Philip Watkins from a concept design by Sue Gray. They were funded by Philip Watkins Ltd, Stainton Parish Council and Stainton Village Hall Trust Ltd.
There was a service in St Winifrid's Church, then everyone went to the Playing Field, the site of the gates, for the Blessing, then to the Village Hall for light refreshments provided by the Village Hall Trust.
