Flying the flag for Armed Forces Day

The Armed Forces Day flag is flying proudly outside Wychavon’s headquarters in tribute to the contribution made by military communities past and present.

Cllr Frances Smith, Chairman of Wychavon, hoisted the flag on Monday (22 June) in a low key ceremony due to the Covid-19 restrictions. It marked a week of celebrations in the run up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday, 27 June.

Cllr Smith said: “Sadly due to the Coronavirus pandemic we were not able to hold our usual ceremony but we still wanted to show our support for the armed services and to give a morale boost to our troops working around the world providing security, promoting peace and fighting terrorism.

“They have also played an important part in the strategic planning that has gone into our response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We also pay tribute to the support and sacrifices made by their families.”

A short video of the ceremony is available on Wychavon’s Facebook page.
