A WREATH-laying ceremony will take place today at 11am, at the town’s Memorial Gates in Park Road as Ashbourne joins the country in remembering the events of D-Day, 70 years ago.

The historic moment in WWII, when troops landed in Normandy, will then be remembered at a special service at St Oswald’s Church at 6pm.

Five veterans of the landings are due to be among those at the services and everyone is welcome to attend.
