A memorial to Sir Patrick Moore is due to be held this evening on what would have been his 90th birthday. The astronomer and broadcaster died at the age of 89, last December, in West Sussex.

Despite his international reputation, Sir Patrick made his home in Selsey where he became involved with local community matters.
