D-DAY 80: HOW THE NATION WILL REMEMBER FALLEN HEROES

On Thursday 6th June, the nation will come together to remember the tens of thousands of allied forces who gave service on D-DAY eighty years ago and helped secure the peace we in the UK enjoy today.

The Town Crier of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge will be reading the proclamation written specially for the occasion by the Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers at the flag pole on Old Station Approach at 8 am.  All are welcome to join him at that time.

At 9am the flag will be raised, at the flag pole on Old Station Approach, and at the flag pole in Highbridge by the Community Centre in line with the rest of the country.

Lights of Peace lamps will be lit on each of the five beaches in Normandy, at 9.15pm local time that night, to coincide with the lighting of beacons around the United Kingdom at that time too. The Town Council Beacon will be lit near the Jetty on the sea front. The Burnham and Highbridge Band will be playing from 8.10pm.

The light from the flames from the lamps and the beacons will represent the ‘light of peace’ that emerged from the darkness of war.
