Armed Forces Day

Published: 26 June 2021

Folkestone Town Council have annually organised a large-scale Armed Forces Day event during the last weekend of June since 2009. Unfortunately, as this weekend currently falls during the timeframe where large events are still not able to take place, the decision was taken to create a virtual event, particularly as Government advice is to avoid large gatherings.

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who form the Armed Forces community; from currently serving troops and Service families to veterans and cadets.

#SaluteOurForces is a simple way for anyone to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe. Last year, celebrities, members of the public and businesses all got involved.

To join in, you can send photos or videos of yourself or family, friends and colleagues saluting!
