HUNDREDS of locals paid their respects on the 80th anniversary of D-Day in Penistone last week.

Taking place at the Penistone Showground, there was music from the 1940s, the local cadets and vintage cars.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Council said: “A highlight of the evening was lighting of the D-Day beacon which the Mayor of Barnsley John Clarke had the honour of lighting.

“It was such a poignant moment of reflection and remembrance of all those who sacrificed their today for our tomorrow.

“Thank you to Penistone Agricultural Show and everyone who helped make the event so special.”
