Keyworth stages two Remembrance Sunday services
TWO Remembrance Sunday services that were held within 100 metres of each other due to a dispute passed without incident.
The dispute started in 2010 with a row between businessman Cameron Ross and councillors over a war memorial, paid for by Mr Ross and built on his land at the corner of Bunny Lane and Nottingham Road, in Keyworth.
Relations between the two sides allegedly soured over Mr Ross' plans to extend the site of the old Royal British Legion base in Bunny Lane.
As a result, councillors have to hold a separate service away from the village's war memorial, 100 metres up the road.

Parish councillor Tony Grice, said: "Both groups were able to pay their respects and there was no incidents to speak of.
"I would prefer the situation wasn't like this with two services, but I am glad that it was peaceful."
Meanwhile, Notts County Council is planning to spend £20,000 to create a second war memorial in the village, at the entrance to park in Selby Lane, because of the dispute.
