On Monday 21 June, Chelmsford City Council will be joining other local authorities across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man to raise specially commissioned Armed Forces Day Flags in unison. This universal display of support aims to honour Britain’s Armed Forces of the past, present and future. Armed Forces Day is on Saturday 26 June.
The flag will be raised on Chelmsford City Council’s flag pole at the Civic Centre in Chelmsford’s city centre. The Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Jude Deakin, will say a few words shortly before a prayer being read. The flag will remain flying high for a week, in honour of our country’s armed forces.
Also joining the Mayor at the flag-raising, will be the Deputy Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Linda Mascot, and her Chaplain, Canon Tom Page.
