St Andrew’s Church in Denton will be taking part in the Heritage Open Days to be held over the weekend of 15th and 16th September 2018 (11am until 4pm).

An exhibition in the church will feature memories of Denton in the past and a commemoration of the 24 men from Denton who were lost during WWI. A book is being created that will contain the life stories of the men and of village life at the time.

There will be craft stalls, a cake and produce stall, and refreshments will be available.

On the Sunday (16th) at 9.30am there will also be a special service of re-dedication of the WWI memorial following the original unveiling service held in 1921.

Enquiries should be made to the parochial church council on 01476 87 05 01.

Denton Village Hall, a WWI Nissan Hut from Belton Park, will be open. 

There will be representatives from the Machine Gun Corps, videos of plaques placed on graves of those lost and displays of WWI memorabilia. There will also be a trail around the village, pinpointing the houses where the men lived.

Following this, on the Saturday (15th) there will be an evening of WWI-themed entertainment in the Village Hall. Tickets (£7.50) are available by sending a request via email.
