On November 11th members of the Pearson family walked across Marsden moor to attend the memorial service on Pule Hill, where a wreath was laid at the memorial cross to remember the Duke of Wellington’s 7th Battalion. This was a well attended service with a Former member of the Yorkshire Regiment reciting For the Fallen.
It was a pleasure to attend the annual Junior School Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph in Marsden Park. The whole school attended with members of The Junior Leadership Team reading a poem. Mrs. Mansell and her staff should be commended on the behaviour and respectful way the students remembered the fallen.
As the nights draw in, it becomes more difficult for motorists to see people, especially if they are not wearing any bright items of clothing. At Marsden Infant and Nursery School, the Head Teacher Mrs Swallow, took an assembly for the children where they were told about the dangers of the dark nights and how to keep safe whilst walking. To ensure the children can be seen at night, we provided every child at the school with a reflective owl, which can be attached to an item of clothing or a bag.
As a family business in Huddersfield we’re always happy to help and support local productions. Recently we were asked if we could provide one of our colourful picture coffins for Priscilla Queen of the Desert, a production taking place at Lawrence Batley Theatre this week by the Huddersfield Musical Theatre Company. We had a Coffin specially designed with a musical theme which was delivered in style in our New Jaguar Hearse.
Today we said a fond farewell to Karl Baxter, a much loved son of our friend and colleague David Baxter. On Karl’s final journey to Huddersfield Crematorium the cortege paused outside his work place, Huddersfield Train Station, where friends and family had gathered to say goodbye.
