Centenary of the ending of the First World War – ‘Battle’s Over’ ceremony

13th November 2018

Sheringham High School students Angelica Jolley, Matilda Walker (both Year 7) and Anna Ward (Year 10) were proud to be part of this final official event of the Sheringham Commemoration and Remembrance Project.

Introduced by the Mayor of Sheringham, Madeleine Ashcroft, each read their own compositions inspired by the tragic loss of life, both human and animal, during the ‘war to end all wars’. At the end of the readings and the final address from the Mayor, the beacon on The Leas was lit simultaneously with beacons all over the country; a fitting end to a weekend of thought-inspiring commemoration.
