Beacon Remembrance Evening to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 – 18.30hrs at the South of England Showground

On the 11th November 2018, the United Kingdom and its friends overseas will mark the day 100 years previously when the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War. The Queen’s Pageant Master has announced that there will be a Centenary Beacon lit at Westminster Abbey and is inviting communities across the country to hold their own remembrance ceremonies. Ardingly Parish Council is working with the support of the South of England Agricultural Society to hold a beacon lighting remembrance ceremony on the evening of the 11th November and invite all residents to attend. We are pleased that Revd John Crutchley and local schools will be involved with this event. The event is also supported by the Parish Council together with a grant from Mid Sussex District Council.

The next film: to be screened at Hapstead Hall on 25th October will be ‘Book Club’ featuring Hollywood stars including Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, Richard Dreyfuss, Don Johnson and many more!
