There will be refreshments in the community centre following the service.


They went with songs to the battle, they were young.

Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.

They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,

They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor do the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;

They sit no more at familiar tables of home;

They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;

They sleep beyond England's foam

(The Ode of Remembrance is taken from the poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon 1914)

Lest we forget!

We will remember them.

Queen Emily's RAFT challenge PDF Print E-mail


Edenfield Rose Queen Emily and her retinue have chosen the charity RAFT – Rossendale food bank as their charity for the year. They have chosen RAFT as they are local they support adults, children and families within the Rossendale. When people are referred to RAFT not only do they get food parcels for the week but guidance and support, and hope that things can and will improve for them with support, love and faith of their local community.

Emily was crowned in June at Edenfield Parish with the church family from all over the team and local community. There was support from RETM puppets and Edenfield Church Choir. Followed by a bustling fair in school raising money and collecting goods for RAFT and the church. Emily and her friends gave an informative presentation on the important role of food banks and her reasons for choosing it as her charity.

So far in the last 2 months Emily and retinue have managed to make 6 shopping trolley full of donations to RAFT from her boxes in Edenfield.

During the summer holidays the older retinue took the RAFT challenge – in which they had to feed and support a family of four for a day with £5 – they went to Tesco’s and thought of all the needs of the family and used their £5 to collect things together they could pass on to RAFT to help families in Rossendale they then gave a morning of their time to learn more about RAFT and help pack parcels for the families.


Emily will continue to collect RAFT though out her year as Rose Queen at all her events and has also placed collection boxes in Edenfield Parish Church, Edenfield C of E Primary School and Edenfield Post Office and Edenfield News agents.
