Celebrating D-Day 80 

Bideford Town Council are taking part in the National Beacon Lighting as set out by the Royal Pageant Master. 

Thursday 6th June 2024 will be exactly 80 years since our heroes were involved in the D-Day Landings, a terrible time for many and of course for those waiting for their loved ones to return.  This was a time when not just our servicemen and women were fighting, but also our fishermen, farmers and growers who had to keep the country going.

We will be holding an evening of commemoration at the Pollyfield Centre with music, tributes and of course lighting the beacon at 9.15pm.  We will be reading a roll call of the names of those who were from our area who have been remembered by their families and their details have been shared with us.
