Dudley celebrates Commonwealth Day

Dudley Council will celebrate Commonwealth Day on 12th March with a multi faith service at Top Church.

Everyone is welcome to attend the service, starting at noon and it is hoped that people from all faiths and cultures will attend this celebration, together with the Mayor of Dudley and Deputy Lieutenant of the West Midlands.

Led by Rev Dr Robert Barlow, members of the Dudley Borough Interfaith Network will deliver the service together which will echo the national service being held at Westminster Abbey on the same day.

Dudley Council will also raise a flag at Dudley Council House on March 12 at 10am together with over 850 flags across the globe. Commonwealth Day is held to honour international cooperation and celebrate the diversity of residents in the borough. The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Dave Tyler, said:

“The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘towards a common future’ building on the individual and collective strengths of all Commonwealth countries. This will help us to work together towards global challenges, providing a better future for all in particular young people.

“As an inclusive borough we are all working together to provide a place of harmony for people to live and work in.”

Attendees are welcome to wear decorations and medals, national dress or uniforms.
