A Village Campsite?

Some people were surprised last weekend by the appearance of lots of tents on the Village Playing field. They were soon re-assured to find it was the well-organised Annual Camp of the local Army Cadets.


Chris Ashton, as well as keeping our cars on the road, does noble service in the Cadet Force. He is the Commanding Officer of the local Detachment. He was thus on-hand to make sure the Camp ran smoothly. And it did.

History in the Making

The news of Her Majesty the Queen’s death on 8th September came as a great shock for many people. She had been seen just two days earlier appointing Liz Truss as our new Prime Minister.

Denton residents, like the rest of the country, treated the period of mourning that followed with profound respect. Her long and distinguished service was recognised at various gatherings including services in the Church and the Chapel.

Everyone then followed the day-long pageantry of her funeral, so brilliantly covered on television, noting the great contribution from the many members of her family and sympathising with them all.

Great To Be Back

After a two-year gap, the Gardening Club's Open Show returned, with a bang, on Saturday.

Despite fears of the potential impact on entries of a very dry summer, the Show went amazingly well. 61 Competitors took part, with 414 Entries across the 53 Classes, and in the afternoon there were well over 100 spectators.

Details of the results and pictures of the Show can be seen on the Show History Page.
