Manchester joins cities across the country who are all flying the Armed Forces flag in the run up to Armed Forces Day this weekend.

The celebrations for Armed Forces Day will conclude on Saturday 30 June in St Peter’s Square with a host of family friendly activities from 11am-4pm.

Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor June Hitchen, said: “I’m looking forward to this Saturday’s celebration in St Peter’s Square which is an occasion to appreciate and applaud the outstanding contribution made by the Armed Forces community. As Manchester’s first citizen it’s a real privilege to be able to honour their tireless work, dedication and professionalism on behalf of the city.”

“Armed Forces Day allows us to pay tribute to the courage and experience of current members and veterans of the Armed Forces. It’s a great day out for all the family and a fantastic opportunity to show your appreciation of their service.”
