North Somerset remembers

by mikebell on 8 November, 2018

Remembrance Sunday takes on a special significance this year, marking the centenary of the end of hostilities in the First World War.

Events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the war are taking place throughout North Somerset, culminating in remembrance services across the district on Sunday 11 November.

Parades, concerts, exhibitions, memorial walks and the lighting of beacons are just some of the events that have been organised in local communities.

As a lead-in to the next day’s commemorations, communities across North Somerset are being invited to join together in a tribute called ‘Legacy of Light’ on Saturday 10 November at 6pm.

Town and parish councils, churches and other faith groups, veterans and service organisations, youth groups and community groups are being encouraged to join together at the same time and light a tea light candle in memory of those who fought and lost their lives in World War 1.

‘Legacy of Light’ tributes are planned in a number of communities. More information about these and other commemoration events taking place in North Somerset can be found at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/remembrance.

With ceremonies on Sunday expected to attract larger crowds than in other years, please allow extra time for your journey as you may have to park further away from your chosen venue and make sure your vehicle is parked legally, with courtesy to others and is not causing an obstruction.
