Flying the Red Ensign for Merchant Navy Day

Tuesday, 3 September is Merchant Navy day, when we recognize our island nation’s ongoing dependence on Merchant Navy seafarers.  Last year saw more than 800 Red Ensigns being flown ashore on Merchant Navy Day.  This year, our parishes will add to this number, and the Red Ensign will be flown at Glebe Farm.  There will be a flag-raising event at the farm on Saturday, 31 August 2019 - more news later.
