Say thank you to our Armed Forces

A special ‘thank you’ to the Armed Forces community is being held at Dartmouth Park in West Bromwich on Saturday, 24 June.

Residents are invited to take part in Armed Forces Day, which is a chance to show support for all those who make up the Armed Forces community – from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.

It takes place on the last Saturday each June.

A military parade will start the event at the park at 11am. This will be followed from 11am until 3pmby a free family fun day with a host of stalls and attractions which will be attended by the Mayor of Sandwell and the Deputy Lieutenant. Councillor Charn Singh Padda, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for leisure and tourism, said:

“We are very proud of our Armed Forces community and recognise the sacrifices made by those who are currently serving, or who have served for our country, as well as their families.

“We look forward to paying tribute to their service and saying ‘thank you’ on Saturday.”
