Cheshire East Council supports Armed Forces Day weekend

Cheshire East Council is supporting the Armed Forces community at a two-day event at Queens Park, Crewe on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June 2023.

The council which received the armed Forces Covenant Silver Award Employer Recognition Scheme last year, has joined forces with Crewe Town Council to organise the weekend with refreshments and food stalls, memorabilia, military vehicle and Army displays, recruitment support, and a fun fair.

Councillor Mick Warren, chair of the environment and communities committee, said: “I would like to encourage our residents to come along and enjoy this free, family friendly event.

“Supporting the Armed Forces community is a priority for the council and events such as this go a long way to providing a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families.”

Councillor Ashley Farrall, Armed Forces champion, said: “Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans, cadets, and the wider military community across the borough. 

“There are other events and many ways for residents, communities and local organisations across the borough to get involved.”

The opening times for the Armed Forces Day weekend at Queens Park are 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
