Fly the Flag for The Commonwealth

Hythe and Dibden Parish Council is flying the flag for Commonwealth Day in celebration of a family of nations.

Across the country and the Commonwealth more than 1,000 flags will be raised in the fourth year of the initiative Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth that is taking place across the UK and 52 other countries.  The day aims to unite people and provide a sense of promise and hope for the future.

Councillor Maureen McLean, Chairman of Hythe and Dibden Parish Council "We are proud to be in our third year of participating in Flying the Flag for the commonwealth, a project that demonstrates the breadth of the Commonwealth and how we can all participate.  raising the Commonwealth flag reminds us afresh that working together as a close family of nations enables us to respond collectively to the challenges that we all meet, and to deliver a fairer, prosperous, secure and sustainable future for everyone - particularly our young people".
