Tewkesbury celebrates Armed Forces Day 25 June 2011
Tewkesbury will provide a number of events for the public to show their support for our Armed Forces.
Tewkesbury Borough Council has already started proceedings by holding a formal flag raising ceremony outside the council offices Monday 20 June. The Mayor of Tewkesbury Borough Cllr David Walters raised the Armed Forces Day flag personally.
The Mayor of Tewkesbury Town, Cllr M W (Chuck) Pavey invites the Traders within Tewkesbury to participate in a Best Dressed Window competition. The theme of the competition is naturally a celebration of the work of the Armed Forces. The Mayor will judge the winning window on Saturday and announce the winner at the Watson Hall at 5pm
The day’s celebrations will commence with a formal flag raising outside the Town Hall at 11am, where a bugler will play allowing a short reflection on the sacrifice made by the Armed Forces.
Events around the town include
On Sunday, there will be a parade through the Town followed by a service in the Trinity Church. On completion of the service, the parade will march through the Town once more and the Town Mayor will take the salute.
All monies raised during the celebrations will go to The Royal British Legion 90th Anniversary Poppy Appeal; please make individual donations at http://www.justgiving.com/gloslegion90
