D-Day was the largest invasion force ever assembled.

‘D-Day was the largest invasion force ever assembled. 

7,000 ships laden with more than 132,000 men – emerged from the dawn mists rolling off the Channel to face the might of Hitler armies in Nazi occupied France. 

The courage of those soldiers on the Normandy beaches marked the beginning of the end for The Third Reich – and changed the course of history. 

Many of those heroes are no longer with us for this week’s 75th anniversary, but their achievements will be forever etched on the fabric of our nation. 

To honour them, your Parish Council will make a tribute on 6 June at 3pm on behalf of our community at the War Memorial. 

Please join us on this special day.’
