Brighton & Hove’s Armed Forces Day Celebrations this Weekend!

Although Armed Forces Day was officially last weekend, we are holding our event this Saturday (3rd July) to coincide with the Sussex vs. Bangladesh cricket match at the County Ground in Hove. The day will include parades, live music, activities, displays, military vehicle exhibitions and of course, cricket! It promises to be a fantastic occasion and I, for one, shall be coming along to show my support. All money raised will be going to the excellent Help for Heroes charity which provides support to servicemen and women wounded in action. The itinerary for the day is as follows:

9am
Gates Open – Cadets and members of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment will have buckets for donations 
10.15am
Toss of the coin with army representative 
10.25am
Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment The Tigers – Parachute Display Team will dive into the ground with the match day ball 
10.45am
The match between Sussex and Bangladesh begins
12.45am
Lunch break begins.  
2.30pm
Veterans will enter the field of play on military vehicles followed by the cadets’ parade lap of the ground, salutes and the cadets’ inspection by the Lord Lieutenant  

I think it is incredibly important that our armed forces receive as much public support as possible for the incredibly difficult work that they undertake and events such as this can only help to foster that support and understanding.
