Last Modified June 24, 2024

The Mayor of Hertsmere has shown support for the people who make up the armed forces community, as part of a special event to commemorate Armed Forces Day.

Mayor Councillor Richard Butler led a small flag-raising ceremony outside our Civic Offices today (Monday 24 June), ahead of Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June. He was joined by Deputy Mayor, Cllr Parveen Rani, Revd Louise R Collins, bugler Adrian Temple, Royal British Legion Representatives Brian Dee and Dave Jarvis, Mayoral representatives of Elstree and Borehamwood and other councillors and staff for the occasion.

We are Board members of the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant and are committed to show support for those in the Armed Forces community.

Mayor Cllr Butler, said: “We raise the Armed Forces flag today to pay tribute to our serving troops, service families, veterans and cadets.

“The day provides an opportunity to recognise their sacrifice, dedication and commitment and show our appreciation for the valuable service they provide to civilians in keeping us safe.

“We will be flying the Armed Forces flag outside our offices all week to show our thanks and appreciation for the Armed Forces Community.”

Armed Forces Day aims to raise public awareness of the contribution made by those who serve or have served in the armed forces, as well as those who support them.
