East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight is backing Armed Forces Day as a great opportunity to show support for those who make up the Armed Forces community

‘Armed Forces Day’ takes place on Saturday 29 June and events will take place across the country including a Community Armed Forces Day Parade in Bridlington from 11am-4pm

Sir Greg said: “Our Armed Forces proudly defend the UK and its interests. They are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism”.

“Armed Forces Day provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families and I encourage people to show their support”.
