Nuneaton — 24 June 2017
The Jesse Owen RM – Armed Forces Day and Gala Event 2017 Nuneaton
- 9 Dunns Close,
The Jesse Owen RM – Armed Forces Day 2017 & Gala Event Nuneaton will allow our local and wider community to show their support and acknowledge the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces, Serving Personnel and Veteran, their Families, and our Cadet Forces. In particular this year we will also recognise the contributions made by the late Jesse Owen Royal Marine, a Veteran who himself has supported his community in many ways. The event will take the form of a Gala Field event with a small arena allowing displays and demonstrations by the Armed Forces Community – Cadet Field Gun Run Competition and other Community Groups. As for previous years, our theme will allow static displays/recruiting by the Serving, Reservists and all 3 Cadet Forces. The event will also involve Military Charities, SSAFA, The Royal British Legion, H4H, and other smaller registered Military Charities. We will also provide a family fun fair area, with market/trader stalls bringing a variety of community engagement activities, including WASPS RFC with their community sports activities. Warwickshire’s Lord Lt, local Mayors and MP’s will form the VIP’s and will meet representatives from the Armed Forces Community and its Civilian Community.
