Vigil for the war



Have your say

Embrace the darkness in commemoration of the First World War.

People across the UK will turn off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on Monday, August 4 to mark the time that Great Britain entered the war.

Centenary candles, organised by the Royal British Legion, are available in M&S.

Sandy RBL is planning a commemorative vigil at the Bedford Road war memorial during the hour. Nearby street lights will be turned off.
