Armed Forces Week

On Monday Anna joined veterans, soldiers from Chetwynd Barracks and Broxtowe’s Mayor Mick Brown to raise the flag of our Armed Forces in Beeston Square to commemorate all those who have served and continued to serve our country.

This event marked the beginning of Armed Forces Week which culminates in tomorrow’s Freedom Parade through Beeston by the 170 Engineers from Chetwynd Barracks. 

Also as part of Armed Forces Week Anna had a meeting with Rick Harrington who runs Forces in the Community, an award-winning, Beeston based charity that helps ex-armed forces personnel. To find out more about the great work the charity does please visit their website here.
