Commonwealth Flag Raising On Yorkshire Coast

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 6:02am 13th March 2017.

Ceremonies are taking place on the Yorkshire Coast this morning to mark Commonwealth Day.

At 10am, the Commonwealth Flag will be raised in Scarborough's town hall gardens and Bridlington's South Cliff Gardens.

It's all part of a national initiative, which is now in it's third year.

Liam Dealtry, the mayor of Bridlington, said:

"We need to celebrate these things, it unites us all, and just for one day a year everyone goes to see the flag raising. It's great to see the Commonwealth flag go up, it's unity and it's people connecting together around the world."
