A parade will be staged in Conisbrough to help mark the centenary of World War One.

Members of the Conisbrough and Denaby branch of the Royal British Legion will gather for the parade through the town centre alongside members of the local heritage group and cadets.

They will gather at Conisbrough Library on Sunday, August 3, at 1.45pm and will march to the war memorial in Conisbrough for 2pm.

There will be a short service of remembrance at the memorial, including the reading all the names of the soldiers from Denaby and Conisbrough who died in the 1914 to 1918 conflict.

Visitors will also lay wreaths before returning to the library for refreshments, provided by the Conisbrough and Denaby Main Ladies Community Group. There will also be an exhibition of pictures and information points in the library, put on by the Conisbrough and Denaby Main Heritage Group.

A volunteer from a re-enactment group will also mark the occasion by wearing an World War One era uniform. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
