Living Later Life Well June/July 2024 Newsletter

The latest activities and events on offer at Trinity Methodist Church for all members of the local community aged 60+.


On Thursday, June 6 the nation will come together to remember the tens of thousands of allied forces who gave service on D-DAY eighty years ago and helped secure the peace we in the UK enjoy today.

From early morning when the sun rises to evening as night descends, church bells will ring out, special flags will be flown, schoolchildren will learn stories about their great grandparents, and, in a final gesture of homage, beacons and Lamp Lights of Peace will be lit to signify the light that emerged from the dreadful darkness of war.

St Mary’s Church in Barton Upon Humber will ring the Church bells at 18:30 on the 6th June. St Marys bellringers say they “are proud to ring for the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The bells are rung for important events and commemorations & we are honoured to participate”.

Bruno Peek CVO OBE OPR Pageantmaster of D-Day80, and of the 80-day countdown to June 6, 2024, says; “In 1944 Allied forces mounted the largest amphibious invasion the world has ever witnessed. Operation Overlord, D-Day, saw over 5,000 ships and landing craft set down more than 150,000 troops on the five Normandy beaches that would bring about the liberation of north-west Europe from Nazi occupation.

“In order to commemorate the peace and freedom given to us through the bravery and ultimate sacrifice of so many thousands involved in the D-Day landings, and throughout the whole of WW11, beacons and Lamp Lights of Peace will be lit across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories  – and in a very poignant and unique gesture, a special Lamp Lights of Peace lamps will be lit on each of the five beaches in Normandy, at 9.15pm local time that night, to coincide with the lighting of beacons at that time too.

“However, at 9.10pm, as night descends – and just before the beacons ignite – the resonant sound of bagpipes will be heard across the capital cities of London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Cardiff. We will also have a presence in the capital cities of the Allied nations that took part. From Washington DC to the distant shores of New Zealand’s Auckland, from Ottawa to Paris, and from Canberra to Brussels, Athens and Amsterdam, Oslo, Warsaw, and Prague.

“The light from the flames from the lamps and the beacons will represent the ‘light of peace’ that emerged from the darkness of war, with the lamp providing a very simple, safe, unique and cost effective way of taking part in this important 80th anniversary occasion, especially as once used, can be lit again at 11am on every Remembrance Sunday thereafter, in tribute to the many millions that sacrificed their lives during WWII.”

Join in with the D-Day80 celebrations within Barton Upon Humber:

  • Join the Town Council for FREE tea and cake within the Assembly Rooms between 2-4pm. Pre booking is essential.
  • Listen to the bells at St Mary’s Church at 18:30
  • Join in with the evening celebrations organised by the Viking Way Café Bar for Pyro Dancers, Wartime singers and BBQ. The Beacon will be lit at the Waterside Viewing Area at 21:15.

Community Rail Week 2024

Northern Lincolnshire community partnership joins national campaign showcasing how rail can increase access to opportunities.

Barton Cleethorpes Community Rail Partnership (CRP) joins community rail partnerships, station friends’ volunteers and other community groups to showcase how the railway can increase access to opportunities, as the national Community Rail Week launches on Monday 20 May.

The partnership has launched a new E-bike hire scheme alongside a pack of cycling and walking routes between railway stations on the Barton to Cleethorpes line. In conjunction with Humber & Wolds Rural Action (HWRA) and The Cycle Hub, Grimsby, E-bikes and safety equipment is available to hire from £15.00 per day from The Cycle Hub on the platform at Grimsby Railway Station. 

The newly designed routes are available to view on the Barton Cleethorpes CRP website (www.bccrp.co.uk), as well as printed packs being available from HWRA at The Wilderspin Centre in Barton-upon-Humber.

Throughout the national campaign week, Barton Cleethorpes CRP will also be taking to social media to raise awareness of the green credentials of rail travel, especially in conjunction with walking, wheeling and cycling.

Dawn Branton, community rail officer at the Barton Cleethorpes CRP, said: “The area surrounding the Barton to Cleethorpes railway line is stunning.  We want to encourage local people to enjoy the area, look after their environment and improve their health and well-being. 

“The E-bikes are foldable which makes them easy to take onto the train for days out around the beautiful northern Lincolnshire countryside, coast, towns and villages. So, for your next day out, why not cycle there, and catch the train back!”

This promotion is part of over 100 community-led activities and events taking place across Britain during Community Rail Week.

Community Rail Week, organised by Community Rail Network and sponsored by Rail Delivery Group, returns for its fourth year 20 – 26 May and will showcase the innovative projects and inspiring initiatives from across the community rail movement around the theme of ‘More Than A Railway’.

The idea behind the theme is to highlight the inspiring work that goes on in community rail bringing people together and creating more inclusive communities and mobility, as well as the wider socio-economic benefit that the railways deliver.

Community rail is a grassroots national movement supported by hundreds of community partnerships, groups and volunteers to improve travel confidence, increase access to opportunities, tackle social isolation, give communities a voice, and put railways and stations at the heart of community life, while supporting a shift to sustainable, more social forms of travel, including rail.

Statistics from Community Rail Network reveal that each year, more than 8,000 volunteers give around 370,000 hours of their time to community rail, worth £32million in social value to individuals and their communities.

In addition, an estimated 65,000 young people per year engage in community rail education programmes and youth engagement activities, spanning more than 1,500 schools, colleges and youth groups.

Jools Townsend, chief executive of Community Rail Network, said: “Community rail partnerships and thousands of ‘station friends’ volunteers the length and breadth of Britain are mobilising en masse, engaging local people and partners to raise awareness about sustainable travel by rail, and get people enthused about its many benefits.”

Community Rail Week is about bringing people together around the theme of ‘More Than A Railway’. Community rail has an inspiring track record of promoting travel confidence and broadening mobility horizons, sometimes with life-changing effects, while giving communities a voice on transport, and putting railways and stations at the heart of community life.”
