Beacon Lighting and Silhouettes.

A very special Beacon Lighting took place on the 11th November 2018 in Hither Wood.

The local community joined us to pay our respect on the nationwide Day of Commemorative Events marking the Centenary of the end of the First World War and paying tribute to the millions killed or wounded in battle, and those on the home front who struggled amidst pain and loss to help ensure freedom survived.

With a grant awarded by the Heritage Lottery fund we were also able to light 14 silhouettes representing the 44 members of Hill End Hospital who joined the forces between 1914 and 1918.

The silhouettes were then moved for a short while to the Hill End Commemorative Garden
