WW1 BEACONS OF LIGHT
We are delighted to be taking part in this unique, historic event by lighting a WW1 Beacon of Light in tribute to the millions of men and women who died or were injured in World War One and those on the home front who struggled amidst pain and loss to help ensure freedom survived.
We are joining over 1,200 other organisations and local communities in lighting a beacon at 7pm on 11th November 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War.
The Tribute to the Millions will be read out at 6.50pm to all those attending the lighting of our beacon at the Millennium Green.
