Merchant Navy Day 2019
Merchant Navy Day 2019: Tomorrow morning (Tuesday 3rd September) will see two events taking place across the High Peak to mark Merchant Navy Day 2019.
The Red Ensign Flag will be raised at ceremonies in Buxton and Glossop.
At the ceremonies, the Deputy Mayor in Buxton and the Mayor of the High Peak in Glossop will say a few words before raising the flag.
In Glossop, people are asked to arrive by 11:50 am for a midday start at the flagpole in Norfolk Square.
While, earlier in the morning in Buxton, people are encouraged to arrive by 9:50 am for a 10 am start at the flagpole by the Band Stand in the Pavilion Gardens.
This campaign, by Seafarers UK, remembers the sacrifices, salutes the courage and supports the future of the often unsung personnel of our Merchant Navy.
Too often they are the forgotten or invisible service, and by raising the Red Ensign, we will ensure that at least on this day they are remembered.
