Lights to go out to remember the fallen

Thu, Jan 01, 1970

Medway Council will switch off lights at its Gun Wharf headquarters on 4 August to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The council is taking part in the Lights Out project which will see major organisations and landmarks across the country switch off lights for one hour from 10pm to 11pm on 4 August.

Partner arts organisations Nucleus Arts, POP and Chatham Intra in Chatham High Street will also take part and will light a single candle or put a light in their window.

It is hoped to extend the project all the way along the High Street to the Nucleus Arts shop in Rochester.

Medway Council’s leader, Cllr Rodney Chambers OBE, said: “Medway has a rich and long military history going back to the establishment of a naval dockyard by Henry VIII in 1547 and subsequently the Royal Engineers and therefore it is right for us to be involved in this project to mark the hour when Britain entered the First World War one hundred years ago.”

On the eve of the declaration of war in 1914, foreign secretary Sir Edward Grey famously declared: "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime," which has provided the inspiration for the Lights Out project.

Landmarks including the Houses of Parliament and Blackpool Tower will turn off their lights.

An exhibition at the Guildhall Museum in Rochester High Street also takes a look at the impact of the First World War on the people of the Medway.

“Stories from the Great War” explores the theme of war on land, on sea and in the air.

It is supported by personal narratives, written accounts and a selection of objects from the museum’s collection, together with special loans from residents.

The exhibition seeks to commemorate those who fought and died in the war, and to respectfully honour their memory.
 
It runs until 11 January 2015, open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 4.30pm.

Forget the car, we’re taking the Walking Bus to school

Thu, Jan 01, 1970

Children have been getting their parents to ditch the school run in favour of the school walk.

Pupils from Cedar Primary in Strood are the latest to join Medway Council’s successful Walking Bus scheme.

Youngsters said they were fed up of experiencing congestion outside their school and wanted a healthier alternative to the car.

And one pupil told Medway Council’s Safer Journeys Team that it was the first time they had ever walked to school.

Nearly 800 children are involved in the Walking Bus with nearly 50 active routes in Medway.

Powered by good, old-fashioned legwork, the children and volunteers walk in a group along a set route, picking up or dropping off  'passengers' at specific 'bus stops' on their journey to and from school.

Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Front Line Services, councillor Phil Filmer, said: “It’s pleasing to see another school get involved with Walking Bus.

“We have seen the number of journeys by car reduced significantly since the scheme started ten years ago and it’s a great way of keeping children fit and getting them to school safely.”

A Walking Bus can be easy to set up and must have a minimum of two adults per route (often staff or parents); an adult 'driver' at the front of the bus and a 'conductor' at the back of the bus, ensuring that a ratio of one adult to every six children is met.

Younger children and babies transported in pushchairs or buggies may join the walking bus if accompanied by their parent or carer.
