Grants given to local community groups to commemorate the D-Day 80th anniversary

From a 1940s-themed party to an afternoon tea event, Weymouth Town Council has awarded grants to local community groups and organisations to put on D-Day 80 commemorative activities.  

The grants will bring communities together on this poignant day, benefiting several groups, including: 

Cllr Jon Orrell, Mayor of Weymouth said: “I am so pleased that these local groups are putting on a variety of events to bring our communities together to honour and remember the significance of D-Day here in Weymouth.  

“These events will complement the programme of activities the Council has organised as we commemorate this pivotal moment in history.” 

Weymouth Town Council is proud to support these local initiatives and is looking forward to the impactful events and activities that will take place as a result. Visit the website for full details.
