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.
