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

At Shoreham Fort, bikers from the Royal British Legion Rider’s Sussex branch took part in a Bikers’ Beacon Lights Out event on Monday night.

In the 3bs Parish, the church bells tolled to remember the fallen from Upper Beeding, Bramber and Botolphs.

Worthing Pier hosted a parading brass band and street theatre from the Southwick Players and the Friends of Shoreham Fort.

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

The Steyning Herald reports on a Steyning charity hero is looking for one last fundraising push before he retires and we have a picture special on Steyning air cadets and their recent activities.

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