Charlotte watches as the Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity is
read next to the statue of local poet Ammon Wrigley of Delph.

Everbody sings Pratty Flowers, the Holmfirth Anthem

Around 300 people attended

Holmfirth Anthem
1. Abroad for pleasure as I was a-walking
On one summer, summer's evening clear (repeat 1st 2 lines)
There I beheld a most beautiful damsel
Lamenting for her shepherd swain
2. The fairest evening that e'er I beheld thee
Evermore with the lad I adore
Wilt thou go fight the French and Spaniards
Wilt thou leave me thus my dear?
3. No more to yon green banks will I take thee
With pleasure for to rest myself and view the lambs
But I will take thee to yon green gardens
Where the pratty, pratty flowers grow
