Making the event happen...

The success of the day can be attributed to many services of the Council, the Armed Forces Day Steering Group and the amazing support of volunteers who work tirelessly to make this day so special, without them this event would not be possible.

Thank you also to our main funding partner the Ministry of Defence.

We hope you will enjoy this special day and come along, enjoy the fun and say “Thank you” to our Armed Services personnel, past, present and future.

Lost Persons

We want everyone to have a great time on the day, but sometimes people can become separated. Below are a few simple rules and pieces of information to avoid getting separated and what to do if it happens:

  • The welfare point will be located opposite the Gilly's Amusements, so please make sure you are familiar with its location.
  • At air events, most instances of people becoming separated from their parents happens during the flying display elements when everyone looks up! When aircraft arrive to display, please ensure your party are with you.
  • If a lost child has not been claimed by a parent, relative, or carer within 30 minutes of being found by a staff member, the police will be called.
