Events have been organised by the Parish Council over 2 days to bring our community together to remember all those who crossed the channel to take part in the Normandy landings on 6 June 1944.

On Thursday 6 June the Beacon lighting will take place on the green at the top of Portland Place.

This event will finish at 10.00pm.
