'The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.' Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain's officially entering the First World War. Exactly 100 years later the Royal British Legion is inviting millions of individuals, households, local organisations and companies to join together in a national moment of reflection. It is encouraging everyone in the UK to turn off their lights between 10.00pm and 11.00pm on Monday 4th August — leaving only a single light or candle for this symbolic act of reflection and hope.
In Haddenham, St Mary's Church will be open for quiet reflection and prayer during the day (until sunset) as usual and then again from 10.00pm to 11.00pm for a candlelit hour of prayers, quiet reflection and readings.
At 10.00pm the Last Post will be sounded at the war memorial, at Church End, and the floodlights round the church will be turned off.
At 11.00pm Reveille will be sounded at the war memorial and the floodlights will be switched on again.
