THE 100th anniversary of the First World War was commemorated in a number of ways across the area at the weekend.

Read the full coverage from the events in this week’s Worthing Herald.

Worthing Pier hosted a parading brass band and street theatre from the Southwick Players, complete with period costume and Lewis and Vickers machine guns displayed by The Royal Sussex. Shoreham Fort provided outdoor displays.

Historian Chris Hare guided visitors along a World War One timeline along Worthing Pier which had the names of all the Worthing soldiers who died on it.

After live music performances, Richard Attenborough’s 1969 film, Oh! What A Lovely War was screened in the Pavilion Theatre.

There was also a special Drumhead Service held in front of Worthing town hall on Sunday.

At Shoreham Fort, bikers from the Royal British Legion Rider’s SussexBranch took part in a Lights Out event to mark the occasion on Monday night.

Other news in this week’s Herald includes the latest fundraising drive from Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice – a trek of the Great Wall of China.

There are also details of a new scheme to tackle dog fouling and littering. The PCSOs in Adur and Worthing have been issued with new spot-fine ticket booklets in a fresh bid to crack down on dog fouling and littering.

There was good news for children at Worthing Hospital this week after a generous donation of fans means the patients can keep cooler. See the Herald for the full story and picture.

As always, your Herald will be packed with news, views, pictures, sport, nostalgia, business, essential information, entertainment and more.

We also have a great offer this week – vouchers for a free drink and a free children’s ride at Worthing’s Lido.

The Herald is out tomorrow, priced 80p, or 60p if you subscribe.
