Armed Forces Day 2018

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families and helps us to show our gratitude to our past, present and future armed forces.

In the UK, our Armed Forces defend the UK and its interests. They are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism.

There are a number of serving members of the armed forces living in Poynton as well as veterans. A veteran is anyone who has served in the Armed Forces at any time (including National Servicemen, Regulars and Reserves). Armed Forces Day celebrates their continued role within the military community.

We raised the Armed Forces Day flag over the civic hall to help mark this special day.
