We will be having a March Past and Presentation, Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex has agreed to take the salute. Local MP and town Mayor will also be in attendance. LL will review the parade and hand out Eastbourne AFD 2021 Lapel pins to all veterans, serving and Cadets / MPCT. There will be various displays from all of the local Cadet units. ACF – Kit Car, Sea Cadets – Field Gun Run, Air Cadet TBC. Military preparation college will also be in attendance. We are awaiting confirmation on the training programme to see if local Army reserve unit will also be attending. We will also be having a military themed dog show and possibly a small children’s fair. All of the local Regimental associations and Arm branches as well as veteran charities will have stands and Standards flying. There will also be a VIP tent and a refreshment marquee available with various food outlets. We are hoping this will reboot Eastbourne as an AFD event venue.
