Celebrating Sussex

In addition to a celebration of our county's produce, there will be a historical focus on the V's wartime role when airmen from both sides used the V to navigate during the Battle of Britain.

The airmen who gave their lives in 1940 will be remembered, including brothers in law Richard Demetriadi and William Rhodes-Moorhouse who are commemorated in Streat and Westmeston churches.  

Next year the RAF marks its centenary and the V Light Project will provide a timely reminder of the V's role in the RAF's finest hour.

The charity the project seeks to support is the Air Ambulance Trust and there will be fundraising opportunities for this charity.
