Monmouth Assembly Member Nick Ramsay was pleased to join representatives of Monmouthshire County Council at County Hall for the local flag raising ceremony to mark Commonwealth Day earlier today.
Commonwealth Day marks a collective public expression of commitment to the Commonwealth. The event, now in its fifth year, enables participants to show appreciation for the values the Commonwealth upholds, and the opportunities offered for friendship and co-operation with fellow Commonwealth citizens of all ages around the world.
Speaking after the ceremony Nick said: “ I was pleased to take part in this important event, with more than one thousand Commonwealth flags being raised around the world at 10.00hrs today, Monday 11th March 2019 – a shared celebration of this amazing family of nations encompassing the globe.”
