VILLAGE HALL: Herstmonceux Village Hall was recently the scene of a special dedication service commemorating the placing of a plaque naming those villagers, both servicemen and civilians, who were killed during the First and Second World Wars.

An introduction was made by Brian Clarke, a former Fleet Air Arm pilot who, with children from the local school read out the names listed on the plaque. Some thirty parishioners attended the ceremony including past and present parish council chairmen, mothers from the local nursery, and children from Herstmonceux Primary School who help maintain a nearby flower memorial trough.
