TOWNSFOLK are being encouraged to witness history in the making at an event celebrating Commonwealth Day.

Bromsgrove District Council, for the first time, will be raising the Commonwealth flag on Monday, March 10, as part of Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth Day.

The authority is participating along with 500 other local authorities, community groups and charities to show their commitment to the Commonwealth.

The authority's civic head, Councillor Helen Jones, said: “It would be fantastic to see as many residents as possible at the event to show their appreciation for the Commonwealth, the values it stands for, and the opportunities offered to its citizens around the world.”

People are being invited to attend the ceremony at the flagpole outside Bromsgrove Council House, in Burcot Lane, by 9.45am.

A specially written Commonwealth affirmation will be read out, before the Commonwealth flag is raised.
