Residents in Tendring are being invited to mark Commonwealth Day at a flag-raising ceremony.

The flag will be hoisted high on Monday at 10am, outside Clacton Town Hall in Station Road.

It will be one of hundreds going up in more than 40 countries across the Commonwealth on the day.

A specially-written affirmation will be read out by Tendring District Council vice-chairman Karen Yallop.

“I welcome all those across Tendring who would like to come along and mark this special occasion to join us outside Clacton Town Hall on March 12,” she said.
