Armed Forces Day National Event Scarborough - 27th June 2020 ***POSTPONED***

It is with regret that we advise you that Scarborough Borough Council and its partners will be unable to host the Armed Forces Day National Event planned for 27 June this year.
We are hoping to reschedule the event and will provide further updates in due course.
The extra pressure placed on ourselves and our colleagues in the emergency and public services at the present time in extreme circumstances means that the planning and staging of such a significant national event is not possible.
Cllr Tony Randerson, cabinet member with responsibility for the delivery of the event said:
“While I am sure you will be as disappointed as we are, you will understand the reason why this decision has been taken and for the need for the services to be focusing their attentions on the current exceptional issues facing the country.

"We’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in working towards the event so far and ask for patience while we work with the Ministry of Defence to consider future options.
"In the meantime, I wish you all well over this difficult period.”

 


 

 

 

 

Scarborough will be hosting this years Armed Forces Day National Event.

Join us for another memorable day to ‘show your support’ and to say thank you to the men and women of the British Armed Forces community that includes serving personnel and their families, veterans and the cadet forces.

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.
