Armed Forces Day

Haverhill — 25 June 2022

Armed Forces Day Haverhill

11:00 am to 3:00 pm
High St
Haverhill CB9 8AR

Proceedings on Saturday 25 June commence at 10.50am with a one-minute silence to honour Haverhill veterans – many of whom were regular attendees at previous Armed Forces Day events – who have recently passed away. At 11.00am, a military vehicle convoy will set off from the Arts Centre car park and proceed through many of the streets and roads of Haverhill to arrive on Market Square at around noon. A map of the intended route will be on the Haverhill Town Council website and social media pages as well www.haverhillafd.org.uk.

As the convoy makes its way back to the town centre The Phoenix Pipe and Drum Band will be there to entertain the crowds as they inspect the convoy vehicles up close, as will the Victory Rolls performing a set classic numbers from the 30s, 40s and 50s. There will also be stalls and activities from such groups as The Haverhill Family History Group, Haverhill History Group and BLESMA the Military Charity for Limbless Veterans. The service flags will be raised at 1.00pm.
