Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth was inaugurated on Commonwealth Day 2014 and was immediately embraced as a valued new dimension to the celebration of the Commonwealth by the people of the Commonwealth themselves. Fly-a-Flag is an opportunity to mark Commonwealth Day, wherever we may be, and to consider
at the same time the personal and community contributions we can make towards shaping our shared future.
The Chairman of Council and Town Mayor, Councillor Steve Hitchings, will read out the Commonwealth Affirmation prior to the flag raising. Members of the public are invited to join with the Town Council to mark this occasion.
