Remembrance Day Beacon

Remembrance Day Beacon

At 7pm on Sunday 11 November 2018, a "WW1 beacon of light" will be lit on the WW1 poppy field on The Chevin.

In commemoration and remembrance of the end of the war and the many millions who were killed or came home dreadfully wounded, 1000 Beacons of Light will be lit at 7pm on 11th November 2018 throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories - a century after the guns fell silent.

The beacon will also commemorate the huge army of men and women on the home front who, often in dangerous and exhausting conditions, underpinned the war effort - keeping the wheels of industry turning, bringing the harvests home to ensure the nation did not starve.

The Beacons will symbolise the 'light of hope' that emerged from the darkness of war.

The Town Council thanks Mr Jordan for building and lighting the Beacon.

Note - there will not be a Beacon Lighting Ceremony and the public are not allowed onto the WW1 poppy field. » Less

Once this is complete and the Draft Plan amended in light of the Assessment, the Plan will be formally consulted on.

The Neighbourhood Plan Working Group and the Town Council hope to submit the Plan to the Borough Council in December with the Referendum coinciding the Town Council elections in May 2019.
