South Gloucestershire’s Armed Forces Day
South Gloucestershire’s Armed Forces Day event celebrates and thanks our serving personnel and veterans for their service to our country.
The event is being held on Saturday 24 June 2017 and will take place at Staple Hill and Page Park.
There will be a parade consisting of the Military, TA, Cadets (Air, Sea and Army), Scouts, Veterans and Marching Band through the High Street and Broad Street, culminating in Page Park. We plan to have a variety of activities performed by the various branches of our armed forces including the TA, Army Careers, Police, Fire and Rescue and local community groups.
We feel it is important that we create a greater awareness in the community of the work the military do, the skills that can be learned by joining the forces and how those skills benefit the community on leaving the forces.
