Merchant Navy Day

We are supporting Seafarers UK ‘Fly the Red Ensign’ for Merchant Navy Day campaign and giving our thanks to merchant seafarers.

Mayor of Chippenham, Councillor Teresa Hutton said of the event; “We support Merchant Navy Day as one of the events in our Civic calendar as it is important that we raise awareness and give our thanks to our island nation’s ongoing dependence on professional seafarers, all those men and women who work at sea, wherever they may be on the world’s oceans”

We have made a video to celebrate Merchant Navy Day, thank you to the Mayor of Chippenham, Councillor Teresa Hutton, Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Sarah Rose Troughton and Merchant Navy representative, George Belcher for taking part.
