D Day Anniversay

NORTHUMBERLAND & D-DAY 80 - 6TH JUNE 2024

As you are aware, we are organising D-Day 80 - 6th June 2024, throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories and at the site of the British Normandy Memorial, overlooking Gold Beach in Normandy, France, one of the five Beaches landed on 80 years ago on 6th June next year, in celebration and commemoration of this important occasion, as well as using the event to enable communities and individuals to pay their ‘tribute’ to those that gave so much during this campaign to help unsure the freedom we all enjoy today, with the flames from the Beacons representing the ‘light of peace' that emerged from the dreadful darkness of war all those years ago.

We feel sure you will agree with me when we say that individuals and communities of all sizes were deeply affected in many and various ways during WWII, so with this in mind, we would like to encourage your Town or Parish Council to take part in D-Day 80 on 6th June next year, as we would like to achieve the lighting of at least 80 Beacons per County, within England and Wales, as part of this 80th Anniversary event, so would be extremely grateful if you would be kind enough to discuss your possible involvement with your Council members at your earliest convenience please, with the view to ensuring we achieve the lighting of this number if Beacons in your County at 9.15pm on 6th June 2024.

 

My warmest regards to you all,
