London — 24 June 2017
The Great Greenwich Get Together and Armed Forces Day Woolwich
Woolwich Station will once again be holding Armed Forces Day combined with the Great Greenwich Get Together on Saturday the 24th June 2017.
This is a large community festival with a significant Armed Forces Day content. The event has a large music stage, large main arena with displays and parades taking place with a number of zones for every ones entertainment. The event runs between 1100 – 1800 hrs. There are numerous zones ranging from a funfair to a health zone; local arts and crafts, food stands, children’s play areas and activity centres. There is also a live music stage with local artists as well as a military rock band participating. The day will provide an entertaining and engaging event for all ages with an emphasis on families and young children.
This is a golden opportunity to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces family within our sector of London. Our participants will include current Regular and Reserve troops, their families and local veteran and cadet organisations from the Tri-Service organisation. The local community of Greenwich attend for free to show their support to the Armed Forces in huge numbers.
In the Military Zone, displays will be static and therefore service personnel are in a position to completely engage with the local community. There are many stands of varying themes, designed to offer the widest selection of military experience. This will allow the community to learn more about the locations where our personnel have served and demonstrate a selection of various tasks in which they expect to undertake. Our personnel and displays will offer personal conversation, vehicles and equipment, and a mock-up RN helicopter, that the community will be able to interact with videos and photo boards designed to show the same personnel and equipment ‘in action’ on various recent exercises and deployments. The attractions will include a display by the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Tigers Parachute Team.
If you can support this event with displays, equipment, stands etc please don’t hesitate to contact me. Can I request you promote this event and inform those who may be interested in supporting the event.
