Armed Forces Week 2014

Published Wednesday, 18th June 2014

Saturday 28 June marks the 6th Armed Forces Day. The respect and appreciation shown nationwide during the week leading up to this day goes a long way to sustaining the high morale of the Armed Forces

Please help us show appreciation by supporting these forthcoming events:

Armed Forces Day: Fly the Flag – Monday 23 June

On Monday 23 June, we will mark the start of this week when the Mayor, Councillor John Wyatt, will host a ceremony to Fly the Flag outside Parkside starting at 10.50am.
Military organisations will be represented and will include dogs and horses from the RAVC Defence Animal Centre in Melton.
Everyone is welcome to attend to show your support and honour those who serve, have served and those who have given their lives for their country in various conflicts and wars.

Uniform to Work Day – Wednesday 25 June

Uniform to Work Day is also part of the series of Armed Forces Day events and is an ideal opportunity for all Reservists to demonstrate their strong commitment for both their civilian and military roles and for employees to show how much this is recognised and valued.  MBC supports this event and encourages any Reservist staff to wear their military uniforms to work on the day.
If you are a Reservist, please ask a colleague to take a photo on the day for us to include in the next Corporate Messenger.

Armed Forces Day Parade – Saturday 21 June

The Mayor will represent the Borough at the Armed Forces Day Service and parade in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant at Leicester Cathedral.  If you are In Leicester that morning, the parade will start at 11.30am from the top of High Street and will head towards the Clock Tower and then along to Gallowtree Gate where the parade falls out.
