D-Day Events for 80th Anniversary

We recently commemorated the 80th anniversary of Exercise Tiger which was less than 6 weeks before the D-Day landings. The terrible consequences of that disaster helped the success of D-Day but not without the ultimate sacrifice of more service personnel.
It is a time to quietly reflect and for the community to come together to play our part in the Nations Tribute at the Beacon Lighting Ceremony at Manor Farm Beacon Site from 6pm on 6th June. There will be a Ram Roast and Live Music followed by the Beacon Lighting at 9:15pm.
