Monday 14th March sees celebrations across the Commonwealth to celebrate Commonwealth Day 2022.
Each year there is a theme chosen for Commonwealth Day.
This year the theme will centre around the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting – ‘Delivering a Common Future‘ – which highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are’ innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve goals like fighting climate change, promoting good governance and boosting trade.
This year, the celebrations for Commonwealth Day will also focus on celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee, and the role service plays in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth.
Locally, there will be a flag-raising ceremony in Buxton at the Pavilion Gardens at 10am.
This will be followed at 11:45 am for 12 noon by The High Peak’s Mayor and Mayoress attending the Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth event at the flag pole in Norfolk Square, Glossop.
The Mayor will read out the Commonwealth affirmation before raising the flag.
