Thank you to everyone who joined us in Sparrows Nest on Thursday 6 June to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D Day Landings.
The event was opened by the Town Mayor, Cllr Alice Taylor, and there was singing and dancing aplenty as the crowd enjoyed a set of live music from the era courtesy of the Super Swing Big Band.
Lowestoft Town Council events are advertised on its website and Facebook pages, via its noticeboards around the town and at the venue itself, and in its weekly column in the Community News pages of the Lowestoft Journal, so do keep a look out for future events!
