Commonwealth Day celebrations

| March 6, 2014

To mark Commonwealth Day next Monday, 10th March 2014, Wycombe District Council will be taking part in a nationwide celebration which will see 500 flags raised simultaneously across the country.

The unique event will take place outside the council offices in Queen Victoria Road and marks the first time ever that local authorities, civic dignitaries, community groups and charities have joined together in local flag raising events and ceremonies of dedication to mark Commonwealth Day.

A specially written Affirmation of the Commonwealth and a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be read aloud at each ceremony, including the ceremony at Wycombe, before the raising of the Commonwealth flag at 10am.
