LIGHTS OUT - one million candles to remember at 10pm on Monday 4 August.

LIGHTS OUT is an invitation to everyone in the UK to turn off their lights from 10pm until 11pm, leaving on a single light or candle for this shared moment of reflection to mark the 100th Anniversary of the date Great Britain entered the First World War.

The Royal British Legion invites you to take part in this national moment of reflection and we will be holding a candle-lit vigil to mark the Centenary. Please bring your own candle or a special Centenary Candle, available from your local M&S (www.marksandspencer.com). All profits from the sale of Centenary Candles will support serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families. Please come and pay your respects to all those who sacrificed their lives during this conflict.

All are welcome. Please meet at: The Phoenix Inn or Hartley Wintney War Memorial at 10pm.
