Westbourne’s Remembrance Day Beacon

By 19 November, 2018 No Comments

The Parish Council would like to thank residents who attended its Beacon event on Sunday 11 November 2018 to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War and to remember those who were killed in action from the Parish. The event was well attended and was supported by the Church.

The event started with a highland piper playing the Battles O’ver. At 6.45pm the names of 55 men were read out, followed by the beacon being lit at 7pm, and the church bells ringing out for peace at 7.15pm.
