Flying the flag for Armed Forces Day

Published: 22/06/2016

On Monday 20 June, the Chairman of the Council, Councillor Peter Curtis, was joined by Lord Lieutenant Harry George Fetherstonhaugh OBE LL, and Councillor Andy Dunbobbin the Councils Armed Forces Champion, in raising the Armed Forces Day flag. Saturday 25 June marks the eighth National Armed Forces Day and provides organisations and individuals with an opportunity to show their support for serving and veteran armed forces personnel and their families. Councillor Peter Curtis said: I am proud that Flintshire County Council is joining other public organisations across Wales and the UK in flying the Armed Forces Day flag. It is important that we join together and demonstrate the value we place on our armed forces, the work they do and the sacrifices they make. Armed Forces Day is encouraging people to #SaluteOurForces, and I would encourage Flintshire residents to visit the website and get involved. The flag will be flying at County Hall between Monday 20 and Saturday 25 June.
