Armed Forces Day 2012

Armed Forces Day 2012 was a great success and I was delighted to join civic leaders, our armed forces, veterans and the local community in celebrating this year's event which was held in Wigan Town centre.

The men and women who serve in Britain’s armed forces continue to make enormous sacrifices to protect our country and Armed Forces Day provides us all with the opportunity to demonstrate our support for everyone in the serving community.

Armed Forces Day is now a regular fixture in the life of the Borough and judging by Saturday's event, and the support of the local community it is here to stay.

Special thanks to the council, veteran organisations and the team of volunteers who made the day possible.
