Members of the public are invited to take part in a ceremony to honour the country’s service men and women as part of Armed Forces Week.
This seems to be typical of this area. You get lots of notices without start times, including the Parish Council meeting, but this one excels, not only no time but no place.
Members of the general public are invited to join representatives of all three Armed Forces, local dignitaries and councillors around the flag pole at North Dorset District Council on Monday 20 June to honour the country’s service men and women as part of Armed Forces Week.
Chairman of Council Lt Col Mike Oliver will welcome everyone to the ceremony. He will then hand over to Col Garry Hearn, Blandford Garrison Commander, who will give a brief resume of Blandford Camp and its links with the local community.
The Reverend Tim Storey, Rector of Blandford Forum and Langton Long, will lead the assembled group in a few minutes of prayer.
Armed Forces Day will take place on Saturday 25 June. The day is an annual opportunity for the nation to show its support and thanks to the service men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving troops to service families and from veterans to cadets
How much do we pay these people?
