The 6th June 2024 marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces mounted the largest amphibious invasion the world has ever witnessed. Join us as we commemorate this historic day.

Proceedings begin at 6.30pm when there will be a recording of church bells, ringing for peace. This will be followed by a welcome from the Mayor.
