Plans have been drawn up to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day in Weymouth.

We will be funding various activities on Thursday 6th June to coincide with this poignant anniversary. This date is etched in Weymouth’s history as the town was a departure point in June 1944 for thousands of Allied troops, mainly Americans, and confirmed plans so far are listed below with more to come:
