Armed forces day

Soldiers past and present are set to be honoured in a ceremony to celebrate National Armed Forces day.

The Fly a Flag ceremony will see a bugle playing and a flag hoisting to remember our fallen heroes and support our current troops.

The event starts at 10.15am on Monday, June 25, at the Hemsworth War Memorial, at the community centre on Bullenshaw Road, in Hemsworth.

People will be invited into the community centre after the ceremoney for refreshments.

The event is part of the district’s pledge to provide support to soldiers in the official Covenant signed in November.
