Torridge District Council Armed Forces Day Flag Raising Event
- Victoria Park
Torridge District Council is starting to put together a programme to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Armed Forces Day in June 2018. Our event will take place on 25 June 2018 and as in previous years will commence at 6.30pm with a military parade from Bideford Quay to Victoria Park, accompanied by the Tarka Pipe Band. The parade comprises serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans, cadets, members of the scouting association, youth and sports groups.
A flag raising ceremony will then take place in Victoria Park to honour the bravery and commitment of service personnel past and present and also their families that support them. Over the past 5 years the parade and ceremony have been very successful and have grown in popularity. For 2018 we are hoping to make the event even bigger. Watch this space!
