Armed Forces Day at ARK at Egwood
ARK at Egwood with funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust Fund has is running a year long project to socially engage with local members of the Armed Forces Community. ARK has been engaging with serving personnel, veterans and families as well as partner organisations as in the the RBL, SSAFA and RNAS Yeovilton.
ARK intends to hold an Armed Forces Day event, to engage with the local Armed Forces Community as well as the local community. The day will consist of showcasing military vehicles, a local singer who sings wartime songs, a local band connected to ARK, have food and drink (no alcohol) and ice cream available as well as stalls from local people as well as family and children activities. ARK will undertake this event with partner organisations as listed above and the local cadet forces.
ARK has recently held an Open Day event with huge local success and support as above so intend this event to be similar, but as an Armed Forces day celebration.
