With the Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth nationwide initiative being held, Southwold Town Council will once again be joining in with the national celebrations.

As Commonwealth Day takes centre stage on Monday, March 11, the traditional annual ceremony will see Southwold Town Council mark the occasion once more and raise the Commonwealth flag.

Southwold mayor, Michael Rowan-Robinson, will be reading messages from Her Majesty The Queen and the Commonwealth Secretary-General at Southwold Town Hall at 9.50am on Monday.

This will be followed by a reading of the Commonwealth Affirmation at 9.55am prior to the raising of the flag at 10am.

A spokesman for Southwold Town Council said: “Everyone is invited to join the Town Council at this event.”
