Armed Forces Day

Sleaford — 20 June 2022

Armed Forces Flag Raising and Veterans Badge Award Service

10:30 am to 11:15 pm

We begin our celebrations with the traditional Armed Forces Flag Raising service in the Grounds of St Deny’s Church, alongside Sleaford Market Place at 10.30am on the 20th June. We aim to have a Veteran Bugler and be attended (subject to Covid-19 restrictions in place on this date) by representatives from our local RAF Cranwell and RAF Digby, local dignitaries, veterans, local army and air cadets. The Vicar of St Denys Church, Sleaford will bless the Ceremony and veterans from the Royal British Legion, SAFFA, will also be invited along with representation from RAF Cranwell and RAF Digby. We also aim to recognise our military Veterans by awarding Veteran Badges at a dedicated ticketed event at North Kesteven District Council offices shortly after the Flag Raising service. All of the above is subject to any Covid-19 restrictions and government guidance in place on the 20th June 2022.
