    MKC will host a flag-raising ceremony on Monday 25 June outside the Civic Offices as the city shows its support for Armed Forces Day.

    Local celebrations to show appreciation for the work of the Armed Forces will take place across the country when all local authorities are invited to raise the Armed Forces Day flag on buildings and famous landmarks.

    The event will start at 10:00 with a march past and the Sir Herbert Leon Academy School Rockband will be performing. There will also be a small display of military vehicles. The Mayor of Milton Keynes, Cllr Martin Petchey, Leader of the Council, Cllr Pete Marland and the Armed Forces Champion, Cllr Terry Baines will be in attendance to pay their own personal tributes.

    The Mayor, Cllr Petchey, says, “Armed Forces Day is an opportunity for everyone to honour the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community; from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

    “Please join us outside the Civic Offices on Monday 25th June as we proudly show our continuing support for the men and women who work hard to protect us.”
