Edenbridge commemorates D-Day 80 years on

D-Day was the name given to the 6 June, 1944 invasion of the beaches at Normandy in northern France by allied troops from countries including the United Kingdom during World War II. Historians often refer to it as the beginning of the end of World War II.

The Council was delighted to host two community events for Edenbridge residents to commemorate the 80th anniversary of this historic day.

On 5 June, older members of our community, including those from local care homes, enjoyed an afternoon tea, music and dancing thanks to funding from West Kent Housing Association and Alan Layland.

On 6 June, everyone was invited to attend an evening community event at Stangrove Park for music, food and lighting of the Beacon.

Thank you to everyone involved in the organisation and running of these events, as well as everyone that came along and joined in the community spirit.
