Red EnsignOn Friday September 1st at 10.00am the Red Ensign will be raised on Whitchurch Town Hall. It will 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

10.00am, Friday 1st September, Whitchurch Town Hall
