St. Christopher’s Church of England War Memorial Home, in Abington Park Crescent, is appealing for any local D-Day veterans and their families to join with them in their commemoration.

The service will take part at 11am, on Wednesday, May 22, and like the events which are due to take place in Normandy the memorial will be followed by a picnic lunch in the grounds, and gazebos and marquee cover has been arranged.

Veterans and their families are invited to bring a picnic with them and watch a concert afterwards by the Homestead Singers.
