On 24th June 2017 there will be an Armed Forces Day Parade in Bishop’s Stortford. The Parade will be led by Royal British Legion Standards and RAF Cadet Band and will include Royal British Legion Branch, Club and Women’s Section Members, Veterans, Army, Navy and Air Cadet Forces, and representatives from local organisations and services.
We have a new parade route this year. All contingents will muster in Basbow Lane (next to the police station) at 2.00pm to march down Windhill and Bridge Street to the War Memorial where there will be a short service of Remembrance. The public will then be invited to come in to the Markwell Pavilion where refreshments will be served until 4.00pm
If you are a veteran (a past or present member of the Armed Forces) please come along and join the Parade by first reporting to Parade Marshall Flt Lt Paul Snook in Basbow Lane at 1.45pm.
The parade is a celebration of the history and proud record of the Armed Forces and gives us an opportunity to celebrate and thank them for the role they play within our society. Free hand held Union Flags will be available to members of the public on the parade route.
