Commonwealth Day 2022

Commonwealth Day 2022 will be celebrated on Monday 14 March 2022 and Silloth-on-Solway will be taking part in the celebration.  A Commonwealth Flag will be raised on Silloth Green, at the Community Garden, opposite the Golf Hotel on Criffel Street, Silloth. The ceremony will start at 9.45am. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Commonwealth Day is an annual celebration observed by people from all over the Commonwealth in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, the Pacific and Europe.

The theme for Commonwealth Day 2022 will centre around the theme for the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting –  ‘Delivering a Common Future’ – which highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are ‘innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve goals like fighting climate change, promoting good governance and boosting trade.

Given that 2022 is Her Majesty’s Jubilee Year, there will also be a special focus this year on the role service plays in the lives of people and communities across the Commonwealth.
