Armed Forces Day

Stevenage — 26 June 2021

Armed Forces Day

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Armed forces day has been a successful event delivered in Stevenage Town Centre (not delivered 2020 due to the Pandemic).

For 2021, we want to go ahead with a revised plan for the day, to include:
– a tank for display – cornered off so shoppers cannot access the tank (for hygiene purposes)
– provide an intergenerational element, asking Stevenage veterans to come and speak, and including the schools/colleges for the younger years to come and listen
– working with Age Concern to find nominated veterans to send care packages to (thinking of the virtual element of events this year)
-and should an event be able to take place, as in previous years, allow relevant charities to have a free stall to raise money for their respective charities; bring in a vintage singer; and bring in face painting to give something for the kids – providing that celebratory feel for our Armed Forces
