Freedom of the Borough March
23rd April 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
On Monday 23rd April we celebrate the launch of the Deal Heritage Trail. This is a walk through the streets of Deal, guiding you through some of the historic events and buildings that we are so proud of as Deal’s heritage. In particular it centres on the Royal Marines and how they played such a significant presence in Deal.
On this day there will be a Freedom of the Borough march taking place through Deal Town. This, for those who don’t know is a very important and rare event whereby the Royal Marines march in full uniform. Pupils in Year 5 will be guests of honour, along with some pupils from other Deal Schools who have taken part in the collaboration project that Deal Parochial School has lead. We will have a reserved area outside Walmer Castle to stand and watch. The Marine project work will be displayed on Walmer Green.
What a fantastic event to look forward to!
Parents will have the option to take their children from school early that afternoon in order to go and be spectators at the Freedom of the Borough March and support the launch of the Deal Town Time Detectives project display and the Royal Marine Heritage Trail. There is world wide interest in this event.
