Commonwealth Day 2024

Commonwealth Day this year falls today (Monday 11 March).

The theme for Commonwealth Day 2024 is 'One Resilient Common Future: Transforming our Common Wealth'. The theme highlights how the 56 member countries must harness their strengths by building resilience, unlocking potential, leveraging the 'Commonwealth Advantage' and fostering a connected, digital Commonwealth.

Horsham District Council is marking Commonwealth Day this year by raising the Commonwealth flag at Park House in Horsham and decorating the Carfax with bunting.

The flag was raised by Horsham District Council Vice Chairman Cllr Nigel Emery who commented: “I think this year’s theme for Commonwealth Day is particularly appropriate as it embraces some key challenges of our time.

We have all had to show remarkable resilience in recent times and it is an even more powerful value when shared in a widespread public expression of commitment to the Commonwealth, embracing all its member countries.”
