Veterans Day-27th June

Having had some good weather for a few weeks, it turned a bit grim for Veterans Week. fortunately it was a bit better for the actual Veterans Day celebrations.

Everyone is listening to the band while they wait for The Duchess of Cornwall.

While a Spitfire does several passes overhead.

It may have drowned out the band but bit makes a woderful sound.

Weekend over and the sun is out again.

Sections of the Illuminations display are starting to be erected ready for the Illuminations switch on on 29th August. It has just been announced that the lights will be switched on by the ‘Top Gear’ team!

The Cenotaph is almost ready for veterans Day on the 27th.

King Kanute is trying to hold back the tide.

Work continues on the new headland on the prom outside the Tower.

A section of near complete new prom in front of the life boat station.

Work continues on the new headland around the central pier.
