Commonwealth Day – Monday 8th March 2021

Commonwealth Day 2021 was marked in Wimborne Minster, today 8 March, but because of the pandemic there was no audience.

The town crier Chris Brown delivered a cry and the Commonwealth Day message from HM The Queen was read by the Mayor of Wimborne Minster, Cllr Shane Bartlett as the flag was raised outside the Allendale Centre. Also present was the Mayoress, Mrs Tracey Bartlett.

The theme for this Commonwealth Day is ‘Delivering a Common Future, Connecting, Innovating and Transforming’ in unity with the theme for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting which will take place in June.
