Urgent update for 2023
Thank you for your support for Armed Forces Day in South Gloucestershire.
The committee have been working hard with external partners, but it has become clear that with the lack of funding for the event and the realisation that more people are needed, we cannot go ahead for 2023. This is a huge blow to us on the committee and to those that have been working hard to get this event back off the ground.
We will continue to mark the day this year and hope to work with South Gloucestershire Council for the annual flag raising ceremony in Yate. Additionally, we will host a free dinner for personnel, veterans and their families in the local area as a thank you - we will send an invite for this shortly.
We are already working towards 2024 and several grants have been applied for to meet the increased costs of services required to make the event successful, safe and fun.
In the meantime, we hope you can support other events happening around Armed Forces Day; Party in the Ponds and the Mangotsfield Festival.
We aim to be back next year on the 15th of June in Staple Hill.
If you would like to help us make this a success, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and volunteer your services on the organising committee.
