Commonwealth Day 2019

Commonwealth Day 2019

Today (Monday 11th March) the Commonwealth Flag will be flying over the town at St James Church to mark Commonwealth Day.

The Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth initiative, now in its fifth year, is again catching the imagination of thousands of participants from all walks of life, inspiring them to join with others throughout the Commonwealth. As a collective public expression of commitment to the Commonwealth, it enables participants to show appreciation for the values the Commonwealth upholds, and the opportunities offered for friendship and cooperation with fellow Commonwealth young and old citizens around the world.

More than 950 Commonwealth flags will be raised on Monday 11 March, in a shared celebration of this amazing family of nations that encompasses the globe.
