Armed Forces Day

On Monday I was honoured to be invited to ceremony to celebrate Armed Forces Day. it was held outside Shire hall.

I was there, with the chief exec, cabinet and the leader of the labour group. No Lib Dem leader though.

School children and members of the British Legion were present.

There were cadets who carried out the drills and were subject to an inspection by Captain Victor Lucas RN (retired) who is also a county councillor. He looked magnificent in his uniform as did the cadets. The school children certainly enjoyed waving flags and were delighted when Victor showed them his sword.

The Chairman of the Council presided over the event, which was a great success.
