Merchant Navy Day 2021

1st September 2021 / Uncategorised

On Friday 3 September 2021 at 10am we supported Merchant Navy Day with a flag raising ceremony outside the Town Hall. 


The Mayor of Chippenham welcomed everyone, invited guests and dignitaries, then at 10am the Buglers from Chippenham Air Scouts and Guides played as the Red Ensign was raised.

This was followed by message from HRH Earl of Wessex, a reading by Merchant Navy Veteran Mr Paul Mitchell and a one minute silence.

Closing words of thanks followed by the Mayor of Chippenham.
