On Monday 22nd October 2018, the Mayor of Fareham and Civic party were joined by Fareham residents to commemorate the centrenary of the end of World War One.
The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Susan Bayford, unveiled a commemoration stone which was designed by Innes Marlow and created by Peter Clutterbuck. Paying tribute to the 'Lost Sons of Fareham' the monument was poignantly positioned to face its counterpart, installed four years ago to mark the onset of WW1.
Music from the era was enjoyed by the crowd, and children from Good Manors Nursery joined in with singing, dancing and flag-waving.
Our 2018 Citizen of Honour winners, Amber Munn and Betty Richards released 12 doves as a sign of peace, following a rendition of The Last Post.
Westbury Manor Museum launched its Fareham and The Great War exhibition, which highlights the role played by the people of Fareham and pays tribute to those who lost their lives. The exhibition is open until Saturday 10 November 2018.
