2016 Commonwealth Day

Alcester will once again be marking Commonwealth Day on March 14th with a flag raising at St Nicholas Church, Alcester.

Everyone is invited to meet on the Church green at 9.30am for a few words and a Prayer, the Flag will them be raised at 9.45am, before guests retire to Church House for a TOT.

This year’s theme celebrates the diversity of the Commonwealth, which is made up of more than two billion people. Every one of them is different, and each of them has something unique to offer. The Commonwealth Charter asserts that everyone is equal and deserves to be treated fairly, whether they are rich or poor, without regard to their race, age, gender, belief or other identity. The Commonwealth builds a better world by including and respecting everybody and the richness of their personalities.
