Military march and celebration to mark Commonwealth Day in Chippenham. Monday March 9 2015.
What a fantastic response from the town to our first Commonwealth Day commemorations in Chippenham. We raised the Commonwealth flag and mayor John Scragg read the affirmation before 300 troops from 9 Logistic Regiment, based at Buckley Barracks, marched through. The Neeld Hall was packed with schoolchildren and visitors enjoying food, dance, music, art and national dress from across the Commonwealth.
“Our year two children, staff and parents very much enjoyed the regiment’s march and looking around the displays in the Neeld Hall and the food tasting. The dancing was a wonderful end to a great morning. The opportunity to meet and talk with the mayor, town councillors and the High Sheriff was a real treat for us too, lots of community learning.”
Dan Wrixon, King’s Lodge School.
