D-Day 80!

By Clerk ( Cliffsend Parish Council

Thursday, 23 May 2024


Cliffsend Parish Council Contributor


On the 6th June 2024, the Parish Council will be commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the 1944 D-Day landings with a number of events within the village. One of these will be a fish and chip lunch in the Village Hall, which will be served in wrapping paper with tea or coffee.

This event will be free for those residents who are 80 or over by 6th June 2024. Any spare places will be offered to residents of the village, for those younger than 80 there will be a nominal charge.

Cllr Beryl Harrison is currently taking names for those who would like to partake of the event, whether over 80 or not, for planning purposes. Your names need to be on the list to be included in the fish and chip lunch. Please contact by phone or email 01843 594094/

Fish and chips will be the only dish on the menu as the whole significance of this is that fish and chips was the one food that was not rationed throughout the war years.

It is intended to play wartime music at the event, and I am sure memories of this momentous time in history will be shared.

If you have neighbours who are in the older age group and who may want to take part in this event, but with no access to the internet, please could you let them know. Please leave a message on answerphone if no-one available.

Later on that day, the beacon will lit on Hugin’s Green, at 09.15pm, with wartime music being played, and the proclamation relating to the occasion being read as has been done in the past. It is intended that we put out a board with photographs and information about the event. If you have any stories relating to that period in time either personally or from loved ones, and you would like them included on this board, please also contact the Council or Cllr Harrison.

The Viking Café will be staying open until 10pm for drinks and food, and parking will be available on the green as well.

We look forward to seeing you there.
