Marking national Merchant Navy Day in Horsham 2022

Horsham District Council showed its support for the national ‘Fly the Red Ensign for Merchant Navy Day’ campaign at its Park House building on Saturday 3 September.

The campaign raises awareness of our island nation’s dependence on Merchant Navy seafarers - past, present and future.

Present at the raising of the Red Ensign flag were Horsham District Council Chairman Cllr Kate Rowbottom, Armed Forces Champion Cllr Peter Burgess and Cllr Karen Burgess.
