A D-Day commemoration service is to be held at the Penryn Campus at 3pm on Sunday, June 8, and will be led by Father Jon Bielawski of St Mary’s Church in Falmouth.

The service will take place at the grotto, situated near the old entrance to the university campus, which was built by the American serviceman who were stationed nearby during the war.

American students will be taking part in Sunday’s service.
