Fly the Flag Merchant Navy Day

IMG_2880Friday 2nd September was Fly the Flag day for the Merchant Navy. This year Fr Robin is acting as chaplain the the Chairmen of the District Council, Councillor Simon Raikes. At 10am the ensign was raised by the Westerham Sea Cadets, and prayers said for all those who serve in the Merchant Navy, and all who have lost their lives serving in it, not least in conflict. This is a day which has been recently introduced, but allows communities to remember the service and sacrifice that these men and women have made. IMG_2881
