Monday 22nd August marks the first anniversary of the tragic events at the Shoreham Air Show 2015.

As previously reported, Adur District and Worthing Borough Councils will fall silent at 1.22pm – the exact moment in 2015 when the tragedy started to unfold.

In Shoreham the bells of St Mary da Haura will begin to peel at 1.20pm and fall silent at 1.22pm. At 1.23pm, there will be 11 individual rings symbolising the 11 men who lost their lives.
In Worthing, maroons will be set off from the beach to signal the start and finish of the minute.

Members, officers and the community will gather outside of the Shoreham Centre, Pond Road, and Worthing Town Hall, Chapel Road, to share the minute of silence together, remembering not only those who lost their lives, but also the heroic actions of the emergency services at the scene and the community in the days, weeks and months which followed.

Flags on Adur District and Worthing Borough Council buildings will be flown at half mast for the day.

West Sussex County Council will mark the minute’s silence across all of its offices and fire stations, and flags will be flown at half-mast at council buildings.
