Shropshire Council today joined other local authorities across the country to raise the Armed Forces Day flag in a display of its support for Shropshire’s Armed Forces community.

Armed Forces Week begins today, Monday 24 June, when the Armed Forces Day Flag is raised on buildings and landmarks around the UK.  It culminates with Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June which provides people with the ideal opportunity to thank and show support to our Armed Forces community.

Shropshire Council signed the Armed Forces Community Covenant in 2012 and has supported Armed Forces Day ever since. The county has a strong military heritage so is delighted to be prolonging and strengthening its relationship with the county’s military community.
