Event will Honour our Armed Forces

Raising the flag for Armed Forces Day

Published Monday, 22 June 2015

A SPECIAL outdoor service and parade will be held in Hinckley this Saturday (27 June) to enable people to show their support for the Armed Forces.

Now in its seventh year, Armed Forces Day offers everyone a chance to thank the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. 

The service will take place in Argents Mead on Saturday 27 June at 11.05am, followed by a parade down Castle Street. A salute will be taken on Regent Street and hand-held flags will be handed out to the public to show their support.

Organised by the Borough Council and the Hinckley Combined Ex-service Association, the event will include representatives from several regiments, nationalities, sections and services, including the local cadet forces.

All are welcome to attend this free event.
