On Monday 12th March 2018 the ‘Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth’ ceremony took place at the Brightlingsea War Memorial.

 The Mayoress, Mrs Eileen Lowe, read out the Commonwealth Affirmation, followed by the Mayor of Brightlingsea, Councillor Ian Block, who read out a message from the Commonwealth Secretary-General.

 The flag was raised at 10am by Mr George Stevens of the Royal British Legion.

 Thanks go to all who attended the service.
