Millenium Walkway

It would be appreciated that if any further wear and tear is reported in the same manner, which any user can do.There will be further updates, if a more permanent solution to the problem is reached by DCC in conjunction with New Mills Town Council.

New Mills World War One Commemoration

The Great War started on 4th August 1914 and ended on 11th November 1918, a total of 52 months. During that period, New Mills, a town with a population of around 8,000, lost 205 men who were killed on active service, a terrible toll of nearly 4 men a month. Of the number of men, physically or mentally injured there is no accurate record, but it would be safe to assume the figure would be far greater. Local men and their families made great sacrifices and the Town Council and its partners will recognise these sacrifices by -

  • Installing notice boards at key points around the parish. The boards will carry a list of casualties and other World War One information and wherever possible on the anniversary of the death of a local serviceman, a biographical piece about the casualty will be posted on the board.
  • To mark the centenary of the Great War, to illustrate its horror and the bravery of the men of both sides who fought in the trenches of Flanders and elsewhere, the machine gun will go on permenant display in the Town Hall foyer.
  • New Mills Town Council have agreed that over and above any national commemoration, the town will honour the sacrifice of those New Mills men who were killed, those men who were wounded and of the local families who suffered and gave so much, by undertaking to continually fly the Union Flag* at the Town Hall from the 4th August 2014 until the 11th November 2018 as a mark of respect and appreciation.
  • As a further mark of respect, all the council's official paper will carry the image of a red poppy, the universally recognised symbol of remembrance, from 4th August 2014 until 11th November 2018.
  • A number of special church services will take place at key moments in the war. The first on Monday 4th August will take place at 7.30pm at St.George's Parish Church and will mark the outbreak of war 100 years ago.

* Except during national days such as St. George's Day, when we would fly the appropriate flag, or in the event of the flag needing to be lowered as a mark of respect.
