Flag raising marks lead up to national Armed Forces Day 2019

Date: 

Monday, 24 June, 2019

From today (Monday 24 June) the Armed Forces flag will fly proudly above the Civic Offices to mark the lead up to Britain’s Armed Forces Day.

Woking Borough Council will be joining hundreds of other councils across the UK in raising a unique flag to support Britain’s Armed Forces Day. Flags will be flown the length and breadth of the country from Aberdeen to the Scilly Isles and from Lowestoft to the Isle of Man.

The specially designed flag, based on the Union Jack, will fly above buildings across the country to mark the beginning of a week of events leading up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June 2019.

At 12noon on Saturday 29 June, the Mayor of Woking, Cllr Beryl Hunwicks, will attend a veteran’s service in Jubilee Square organised by Forces veteran, Ernie White. A wreath will be laid in honour of Britain’s servicemen and women past, present and future and Rev Peter Harwood will be taking the service. All are welcome.

The flag will remain flying proudly above the Civic Offices until Monday 1 July 2019.
