Armed forces day celebration
- Banks St
Batley WF17 7QH
We are holding an inter grange/community event, inviting local Army squadrons, Air Cadets and the British Legion, as well as local people.
We will start with an opening speech from Armed Forces personnel, then lunch and time to look at the various exhibits on display, then Pete Jones from Sheffield British Legion will perform a selection of wartime songs. We will also hold a raffle to help fund the event and cash bingo, all money taken for bingo tickets will be used as prizes. To end this event, we will hold a minute’s silence to commemorate the service men and women who have given their lives to keep our country safe. Lunch will be free for all service personnel past and present. We held this event at our sister grange, Wellington Court, last year and it was a great success.
