Forces Day to be marked with flag raising ceremonies
Forces Day will be marked in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge this
Saturday (June 26th) with two flag raising ceremonies.
Ministry of Defence has invited local communities across the UK
to take part in the event, which gives the public an opportunity
to show their support for the men and women who make up the armed
Mayor and Mayoress of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge, Michael and
Maria Clarke, will be leading the ceremonies at 9.30am on the
Highbridge Green in Market Street and then at 10.30am next to
the Water Feature in Pier Street, Burnham. Members of the public
are welcome to attend.

of Sedgemoor District Council, raised a flag outside its Bridgwater
