Stand GC remember their fallen war heroes

ONE hundred members of Stand Golf Club met on Armistice Day to unveil a plaque to five members who had died in the first and second world wars.

It had been noted earlier in the year that no memorial to the men from the club was in existence and therefore donations were made from the members, a board sourced and engraved and 100 years from the end of the First World War it was unveiled.

On Sunday, November 11 the 100 members met at the North Manchester-based club. The ceremony was carried out by member Canon Robert Warner and the plaque was unveiled by the lady captain Andrea Goodall and captain John Hall.

The members then joined in the national two minutes silence remembering all persons who had died in previous conflicts.
