Lights Out

Seventy Five people met at the Clock Tower with candles and torches for Atworth Lights Out to mark the centenary of the start of Great Britain entering the First World War. The half hour service led by Effie Gale-Sides, Rodney Price and Lynne Spencer included historical information, poetry, prayers, prose, songs and hymns. It concluded with candles and torches being extinguished as the Clock Tower struck 10 o’clock.

The Clock Tower light was switched off and the Last Post was played.

The event was very well received and was later described as moving and memorable.

Thank you to everyone who came.
