On Monday 4 August, from 10am – 2pm, Fareham Borough Council is inviting residents to take part in a variety of free events in the town centre to commemorate the Centenary of the outbreak of World War One.
There will be a range of activities and events throughout the day at various locations in the town centre.
Westbury Manor Museum:
Holy Trinity Church
The Civic offices will then be plunged into darkness as all but one light is switched off from 10pm-11pm. Businesses and households across the country will be doing the same and leaving on one solitary light or candle for one hour of shared remembrance.
Join in this shared moment of reflection as part of the Lights Out campaign by turning off your lights between 10pm - 11pm and leave on a single light or candle. You can find out more about the campaign on the Lights Out website .
Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Woodward has said 'We owe a huge debt to those who served in the First World War which is why events such as these are so important. I do hope members of the public will help us in remembering those service men and women who lost their lives by visiting the new memorial, the exhibitions at Holy Trinity and Westbury Manor, and joining in the Lights Out hour in their homes."
