Local Councils across Cheshire, Halton, Warrington and Trafford are being encouraged to take part in D-Day commemorations and celebrations, enabling the local community to pay tribute to those that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy the freedom we share today. There are several ways in which councils and their communities can take part.
All those taking part will be sent the Certificate of Grateful Recognition, which can be printed and framed as a reminder of their involvement.
The latest Guide to Taking Part can be viewed and downloaded from the D-Day 80 website https://www.d-day80beacons.co.uk/ Those councils wishing to become involved are asked to go to page 53 of the Guide, and send the information requested by no later than 30th May 2024
