VIDEO: Hastings commemorates WW1

Have your say

Hastings commemorated the 100th anniversary of the First World War this morning (Monday).

A service of reflection, led by Cannon Keith Pound, was held at 10am at the war memorial in Alexandra Park, in conjunction with the Royal British Legion, which included wreath laying and a two-minute silence in recognition of those affected by war.



Tonight at 10pm the town is taking part in the national ‘Lights Out’ initiative. All of the decorative lights on the seafront will turn red, with a single white light moving continuously along them, for one hour.
