Armed Forces Day

Blackhall Colliery — 22 June 2019

Monk Hesleden PC Armed Forces Event

11:00 am to 3:00 pm

This event will be held in the Parish Council’s public park and will be open to all who wish to attend.
The Park is a focal point for the annual Remembrance Service where the turn out for this event grows year on year.
The purpose of the event is for those in our community who are unable to attend the Remembrance service to show their support to the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.
The Parish Council works in partnership with the local RAF Air cadet squadron, who will be attending the event together with the local Sea Cadets & Territorial Army – all will be providing activities for those attending.
A climbing wall & archery will be incorporated and the local history group will have a display showing the past involvement of our villages in previous conflicts.
The local schools will also be involved as the Council is to work with them to organise an art/story competition which will work hand in hand with the national curriculum,
Refreshments will also be served.
