Fly the Flag for Armed Forces Day – Melton
- Burton St
Melton Mowbray LE13 1GH
The Mayor of the Borough of Melton, Councillor Tejpal Bains, will host a flag raising ceremony outside the Melton Borough Council Offices to celebrate and honour the crucial role played by our Armed Forces in both ceremonial and operational duties and to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. The event, open to the public, will take place alongside the sculptures of working dogs as the town is the home of the RAVC Defence Animal Centre granted Freedom of the Borough in 1977. The Borough is also affiliated with the Royal Navy’s HMS Quorn, also granted Freedom of the Borough in 2006.
