Angmering remembers D-Day

Members of the local community attended a ceremony near the Angmering Community Centre this morning (Thursday 6th June) to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy by Allied forces, the campaign to liberate mainland Europe. Cllr Nikki Hamilton-Street, chair of Angmering Parish Council, and Angmering 'flagmaster', Roger Miles, gave speeches providing background and context of D-Day, and the impact of troop training and vehicle mobilisation in Angmering. Angmering is twinned with the Normandy town of Ouistreham-Riva-Bella, the location of WW2 'Sword Beach', the most easterly of the five Allied invasion beaches.

The ceremony was attended by a number of parish councillors together with Sir Peter Bottomley and Dr Beccy Cooper, the Conservative and Labour candidates respectively for the forthcoming Parliamentary General Elections on 4th July. A number of local residents also attended. Following the speeches, the 80th Anniversary flag was raised by Fraser and Sophie, pupils from The Angmering School.

....

Later in the morning, at a further ceremony on The Green in The Square, also attended by County Councillor Deborah Urquhart, pupils from The Angmering School read the D-Day "Poem for Schools" composed by Chelsea Pensioner, Roy Palmer:

It is D-Day, the Sixth of June Nineteen-Forty-Four. Operation Overlord commenced, leaving the world in awe.
The planning started in Nineteen-Forty-three. Bringing Allies together, to make our World free.
Deception was used, codenamed Operation Bodyguard. Making rubber tanks and wooden planes as a façade.
An American unit was formed for General Omar Bradley. Then a web of lies was spread, by his Ghost Army.
Much more was done, to keep the Germans in the dark. Before the Allies on foreign shores, could disembark.
Everything was Most Secret and kept Hush Hush. As Allies gathered resources, for their big push.
The Allied Supreme Commander was General Dwight Eisenhower. With General (Monty) Montgomery as Temporary Ground Commander.
Eleven Thousand Aircraft and Gliders with Paratroopers and Soldiers. Were dropped behind enemy lines to secure the area.
More than Five-thousand ships, the biggest Armada ever seen. Sailed from British shores and our fields of green.
Monty’s battle plan was written, on one sheet of paper. Set for June the Fifth, the Day of their departure.
But bad weather, caused a Twenty-four-hour delay. Then conditions changed, and they got underway.
British, American, Canadian and many other countries, were together thrown. Going to fight a War, something many had never known.
Over One Hundred and Fifty-Thousand men of every creed. Will perform acts of courage, that must succeed.
There were Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and the Merchant Navy. Many Civilians who volunteered to fight against Nazi tyranny.
Over the English Channel and to Normandy, France will go. To land on beaches called Sword, Gold, Utah, Omaha and Juno.
Were they afraid? Yes! they most certainly were. But the world must be saved, that was their spur.
The German defences were called, the Atlantic Wall. Hitler told Field-Marshall Rommel, he must, the Allies stall.
The Allies landed Twenty-Four-Thousand troops on D-Day. Commencing at Six-Thirty, then things went into disarray.
Wind and rough seas helped landing craft, miss their mark. Putting the plan in jeopardy from the start.
Fierce resistance was put up, by Germans guarding the beaches. The time had come to fight, no further need for speeches.
Beaches were Mined, Barbed wire laid, metal tripods and many hazards. Were set to kill, maim and make things awkward.
Over Ten-Thousand casualties, the Allies had that first day. With over Four-Thousand dead, a heavy price to pay.
D-Day made Heroes, in that hell unknown. Helping turn the Tide of War, as the Enemy were overthrown

Following reading of the poem by the two pupils from The Angmering School, the girls moved to Angmering Village Hall where they raised the flag of Ouistreham.

Snippets from the draft minutes of Angmering Parish Council meeting of 8 April 2024

New Parish Council Buildings- NEW BUILDINGS DEVELOPMENT GROUP. The Clerk talked through the supporting paper and the changes that had been discussed and agreed by the group to be put forward at todays meeting. To get to this decision an overview of the meetings with the BAQUS and the Architects was given plus the processes the group had taken up to this point. It had been decided that the risks were too high to move forward with both the café and the new office building, as originally planned plus funding would be difficult to get at this time for the café. Whereas funding for the new office building/meeting space/youth space would be easier to secure and a more achievable project with a range of advantages for all. An alternative for the café was discussed and APC hope to have a plan of what this could look like in the next week or so. More information will follow when available. After discussion the following was agreed. RESOLUTION: Cllr. Verrinder PROPOSED that work be halted on the original plans for the café, but proceed with the new office building as previously agreed. The office will progress the café idea separately, Cllr. Hall SECONDED and ALL AGREED

Community Grants- One grant request was submitted for consideration this month - Angmering Yarn Bombers – £250. After discussion, which included a suggestion of increasing the grant amount to be offered the following option was put forward and agreed. Cllr. Verrinder PROPOSED that a sum of £300 was granted to the Angmering Yarn Bombers. Cllr. Hall SECONDED and 6 AGREED and 1 ABSTAINED
