Hinckley — 25 June 2016
Armed Forces Day Event and Parade
- Church Walk,
St May\\\'s Road,
In partnership with the Hinckley Combined Ex-service Association and St Mary’s Church this will be a great event to say thank you and honour our past and present serving armed forces.
An outdoor church service will take place in Argents Mead at 11.15am, followed by a parade down Castle Street, with a salute being taken on Regent Street. Hand held flags will be handed out to the public to show their support.
We hope to make a very special presentation to a resident of our borough who has been awarded the Chevalier de la Legion d’honneur from the French government for his work during the Normandy landings.
Representatives from several regiments, nationalities, sections and services will be present at the event, including our local cadet forces.
All are welcome to attend this free event
