One Year


One year, 365 days on….from the day that shook Sussex. The day that began full of anticipation and impending joy for the masses who set off to watch the annual airshow at Shoreham. For me, it was a football day, a glorious day of immense warmth, unbroken sunshine and a possible 3 points.

We all know the outcome, whether you were there, saw the aftermath as I did, or watched the compelling yet grotesque pictures from the television. The day that caused immense pain to many families with the loss of 11 lives.  

There is still no closure for those who mourn. Red tape still binds the truth. It seems that there may not be closure for a very long time. Obviously evidence needs to be collected, and indeed I know a policeman whose job was to go to visit people who had footage on cameras and phones and interview them, but to hear that there still isn’t unity in the sharing of findings makes me cross on behalf of those who are still reliving raw grief.

One thing that is certain is that the people involved and all the emergency service crews who assisted will live on in the hearts and minds of many.  It brought the community #together and that unity has not waned over the year.

At 1.22pm I shall stop and remember.


“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.”
