Warwick district salutes the armed forces with a community fun day

AN ARMED Forces Fun Day is being held at St Nicholas Park In Warwick at the weekend.

The whole community is invited to join in the celebrations on Saturday (June 24) as Warwick District Council marks Armed Forces Week by saluting the work and dedication of those who have served or are serving in the armed forces.

The fun day runs from 12pm until 3pm and will feature music from a regimental band, a live World War II re-enactment, free hot dogs and ice creams as well as trampolines, inflatable slides and free sports activities from Everyone Active.

Information stalls will be available from the Royal British Legion, the Veterans Contact Point and the local military history museums including The Fusilier Museum, The Queen’s Royal Hussars Museum and the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum.

Visitors will also get the chance to explore these museums in more detail, with an activity passport available to collect at the event which challenges you to visit the museums and answer questions relating to their exhibits.

WDC Chairman Coun Sidney Syson said: “Our armed forces community have dedicated their lives to serving our country and it is important that as a district we join together not only to celebrate, but also to say thank you.

“This is a completely free event with guaranteed fun for all the family, so please do come and join us to celebrate and thank our armed forces.”
