Armed Forces Day

A virtual thank you

Our annual Armed Forces Day event is to show our gratitude and appreciation to our past, present and future military forces from air, land and sea units.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 this year’s Armed Forces Day event in Staple Hill was cancelled. However, the committee would like to bring the community together to send a virtual thank you to all of our serving personnel and veterans.

If you would to join us, send a video of no more than 60 seconds with who you are and where you are from along with your message of thanks. All videos will be broadcast on the Armed Forces Day Facebook Page on 27 June 2020.

We are also seeking stories and pictures from veterans and serving personnel of their time serving. This can be anything from a funny story while on deployment or about some of the ‘interesting’ characters you met square bashing. Try to send a picture along with your story. Send all submissions to ianjcampbell87@gmail.com by 24 June 2020.

Armed Forces Day is held in rotation around South Gloucestershire. Details of next years Armed Forces Day will be included on this webpage once details have been confirmed.

We look forward to welcoming you to next years Armed Forces Day in 2021. In the meantime continue to stay safe.

We are proud to support and be an active part of the community led Armed Forces Day Committee in running Armed Forces Day. If you are interested in becoming a member of this committee, contact community_projects@southglos.gov.uk for more information.
