Yesterday Hollingbourne marked the centenary of the end of World War One with a number of events throughout the day and a number of pictures of the day’s events have been received from local residents.
The started with an almost full Remembrance Day service in All Saints’s Church which was followed by the laying of wreaths at local war memorials including the one in Hollingbourne. In the afternoon the Project 100 Avenue of Remembrance was opened at a ceremony attended by over 300 people and in the evening the Hollingbourne beacon was lit in the middle of the Project 100 avenue of hawthorn trees while the Hollingbourne church bells “rang out for peace”.
The pictures received to date are published below.
