Flag flies for unity on Commonwealth Day in Tunbridge Wells

Marvel characters featured include wolverine, Deadpool, spiderman and iron man

The Mayor of Tunbridge Wells Julia Soyke called for unity and friendship to prosper as she gave a talk to school children on Commonwealth Day.

A few hours before the Queen gave a similar address, Mayor Soyke invited the youngsters into the Town Hall council chamber for a reception this morning [Monday, March 12].

One student from each of the seven schools represented posed by the Commonwealth Flag which later flew above the building.

Mayor Soyke said: ‘The theme on this year’s Commonwealth Day is ‘towards a common future’. It explores how we can create a better future for all citizens.

‘She [the Queen] will say just how important it is to remain friends.’

Peter Blackwell, Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, also gave a short speech.

The schools who attended were: Rose Hill School, Pembury Primary School, Bishop’s Down Primary School, Bidborough Primary School, Kent College Pembury, Broadwater School and Claremont School.
