ADC Celebrate Merchant Navy Day

Monday 3 September

 

Today Ashfield District Council celebrated Merchant Navy Day by raising the Red Ensign and providing a service at the Kirkby Council offices.

Merchant Navy Day is where people remember and commemorate the service that the men and women of the Merchant Navy and Fishing Fleets have done over the years, both during conflict and peace.

Raising the flag provides awareness and support for the Merchant Navy Seafarers UK, past and present and all they have done for the country.
