    I was told by a friend that you wish the public to attend at local war memorials on 1st July. Would you not need to publicise this if you wish people to turn up? I had to go looking for the information and I have not found anyone else who knows about it.

      Anne – thank you for your comment. I’m sorry if you feel that having to look for the information was a chore. We will try to do better. However, we are simply suggesting that people might want to mark the Vigil by going along to their local war memorial. Its an entirely voluntary initiative and very much down to individuals how they wish to mark the Somme Battle.

      Mr Williamson, I’m sorry if you feel that you missed out on this occasion. We felt that the Festival was widely known about but I do understood that not everyone got to hear about it. I hope that you enjoyed the parade – the Irish Guards Band seemed to be well received by the crowds.
