Calling all Merchant Seaman past and present, Sea Cadets and relatives of veterans or serving members of Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill– would you like to be involved in Coxhoe Parish Council’s commemoration of Merchant Navy Day? We are currently looking at how to raise our community’s awareness of our island nation’s reliance on seafarers and shipping, and is looking to be involved
in Merchant Navy Day; and have signed up to fly the Red Ensign in honour the brave men and women who kept our island nation afloat during two World Wars, and even during peacetime faced – and continue to face – the more routine perils of violent storms and mountainous seas.
If you are interested in becoming involved, or would like to know more then please email us at:
