Commonwealth Day 2021
It is Commonwealth Day – in the Royal Borough of Greenwich we have communities with links to many of the 54 Commonwealth countries and today we celebrate the shared twin values of diversity and togetherness.
The focus this year is Delivering a Common Future – Connecting, Innovating, Transforming. St. George’s is putting this focus into action and taking a lead with the launch of our Commonwealth and Gurkha Memorial Garden Project – devoted to thanksgiving, reflection, education and our environment. We recognise the vital contribution of Commonwealth countries and their peoples in past conflicts and in our current economy and culture. See further details on this website
and in future announcements.

It is also International Women’s Day - we take this opportunity to thank our women trustees, volunteers and supporters.
