Flagging up Armed Forces Day
Tickets are going fast for a day of celebration and appreciation for Buckinghamshire’s armed forces community.
Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Armed Forces Day takes place at Booker Air Park in High Wycombe on Saturday June 29, from 12 noon. The day is packed with live entertainment, music and attractions, including a two-hour long air display.
The event is open to the public but its main aim is to give local armed forces a day to relax and enjoy with their families and for the public to come along in support to show their appreciation for everything our armed forces do and have done for the country. It forms part of a national programme of events taking place around the country.
This year’s event is in a new venue and for the first time is also free but people must still register online for tickets. To book tickets visit:www.buckscc.gov.uk/armedforcesday
Volunteers are still needed to help on the day with tasks such as hospitality, car parking, selling programmes and backstage support. Anyone aged over 14 can volunteer but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. In return for helping out, volunteers will receive a free limited edition T-shirt and refreshments.

Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher said: ‘We must also remember the main purpose of the event is to celebrate and give thanks to all our armed forces personnel, both past and present, for everything that they do and have done for us. We owe them so much and this event is the perfect way to show our appreciation.’
