Red EnsignFriday September 1st will see the Red Ensign raised on Whitchurch Town Hall to mark Merchant Navy Day, which this year falls on the following Sunday.


Since 2000, Merchant Navy Day on 3rd September has honoured the brave men and women who kept our ‘Island Nation’ afloat during both World Wars, and celebrated our dependence on modern day merchant seafarers who are responsible for 95% of the UK’s imports, including much of the food we eat, most of the fuel we burn and virtually all the products and goods we take for granted!

ALL ARE WELCOME TO TAKE PART AT THE TOWN HALL
The Flag raising will take place at 10.00am
