Stanley Armed Forces Celebration Day

durham county council largeA local celebration to show appreciation of the work of the Armed Forces will be held in Stanley Front Street on Sunday 26th June.

This will be held as part of Armed Forces Day, the annual national campaign that gives everyone the opportunity to show their support for the men and women of the Armed Forces past and present, including currently serving troops, Service families, Reservists, veterans and cadets.

Similar events will be taking place across the UK, enabling people to come out and show their support, and giving a much-valued morale boost for Armed Forces personnel and their families. This year’s national event takes place in Cleethorpes.

Brian Hall, event organiser, said: “Stanley Town Council are keen to show our support for the Armed Forces. This event should be a great opportunity for people to meet and see the work our regular and reserve forces do”

There will be military displays courtesy of 101 Regiment Royal Artillery, field kitchen displays, a funfair, and lots more.

Cllr Joan Nicholson, Chair of Stanley Town Council said: “It is a great honour to be hosting an event to honour our Armed Forces and to show the strength of our community links with them”

The UK Armed Forces defend the country and its interests. Every day of the year they are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers and providing security and fighting terrorism.
