Belmont — 25 June 2020
Finchale Armed Forces Day
Following on from the success of last year’s event, Finchale plans to re-run its popular Armed Forces Day. The event will take place at our premises at Belmont and weather permitting will be held outside!
The event will celebrate the work of our armed forces with a focus on foods from around the world where British Forces have served. Visitors to the event will be able to sample some delicious foods whilst learning about the role that British Forces have played in each country. Last year, the Royal Navy, Army and RAF Reservist Units pitched in and helped us to run a military field style kitchen serving Gurkha style curries and ration packs. We hope to once again offer a mouth watering selection of foods along with different stalls and information.
We will also have presentations, photographs and videos showing the work of British Forces in each of the countries. Veterans from Finchale, our partner organisations, reservists and serving personnel will also be on hand to talk about their own experiences bringing the event to life.
Finchale Armed Forces Day will be open to all and we hope that people will once again come along and join us.
