to Louth Town
On Monday 13th March 2017, the Mayor of Louth, Councillor Mrs. Eileen Ballard JP, her Chaplain, Serjeant and other members of the Council met to raise the Commonwealth Flag outside The Sessions House in a short ceremony at which the Mayor read out the Queen's Commonwealth Day message and the Commonwealth Affirmation. Those gathered then moved inside to witness the Single Commemorative Act which offered a unique opportunity for Louth to join with the national civic family in an event which every Civic Head in the United Kingdom had been invited to take part in concurrently and which was the third of its kind on the run up to the anniversary of the end of World War I. Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain officially entering the First World War "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime". This Single Act invited us to join together in a moment of reflection. A third candle was lit and a light will remain alight for the next twelve months as a reminder to all who see it not only of the sacrifices made during the past 100 years through conflicts in which this country has been involved but also as a symbol of hope that we will work towards understanding between peoples.
