Flag Flying on Town Hall for Commonwealth Day
Town Mayor, Mervyn Hall, together with the Deputy Mayor, Town Crier, Mace Bearer, Town Clerk and Councillors officially marked Commonwealth Day, March 12 with a flag raising ceremony at Marlborough Town Hall.
Mayor Mervyn Hall read the Commonwealth Affirmation before the flag was raised – an affirmation that celebrates ‘diversity, respect and understanding’ and ‘advancing development, democracy and co-operation locally, nationally and internationally.’
This year’s theme is ‘Towards a Common Future’ and builds on the 2017 theme of ‘A Peace Building Commonwealth’. It explores how the Commonwealth of 53 countries can tackle global challenges to create a better future for all through sustainability, safety, prosperity and fairness.
