Remembrance Day

17 Nov 2011

SMHS members attended a very special Remembrance Day community event at the Redoubt Fortress, Eastbourne to mark the iconic date 11-11-11-11.

Local schools gathered to perform drama scenes inspired by personal accounts of war and past conflict. Paper poppies were scattered across the parade ground, adding to the atmosphere. A bugler played either side of the poignant two minutes silence at 11.00am. All donations from the event were given to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
