2020 will be a year none of us will forget. The year that caused major disruption to every aspect of our lives and the year in which all major celebrations were cancelled, including the Remembrance. Wheatley Hill has had one of the most successful Remembrance Day parades and attendances in the local area for many years, but in common with the rest, we weren’t able to carry out our usual well-organised, fitting tribute organised by Mr W Oswald of the Royal British Legion. Instead, wreath-layers visited the cemetery individually to lay the wreath of their organisation. George Cook laid that of the History Club and by 8 November, the large number of wreaths representing the village, were there, proud and defiant of Covid. We might not have had the church service, the parade led by a brass band, the Last Post, a Scottish piper etc but Wheatley Hill still remembered.
