Regular contributors from the Loughborough Army Reserve Centre, Royal British Legion and the Land Rover Club will be making a welcome return.

The Mayor of Charnwood, Councillor Jennifer Tillotson Tillotson, will be visiting at 1pm.

On Monday June 20, a flag raising ceremony marked the beginning of the Armed Forces Day celebrations with Captain Ben Wing and representatives from Loughborough Army Reserves, 158 Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps and the Royal British Legion in attendance.

Cllr Hilary Fryer, the Council's armed forces champion, said: "Armed Forces Day is a great opportunity to show our appreciation for the armed forces communities who have, and still do make, great sacrifices for each and every one of us.

"Whether deployed on operations or back home in the UK, it is important to show the armed forces and their families that the residents of Charnwood support them and the entire community."

The Mayor of Charnwood, Councillor Jennifer Tillotson, said: "We are incredibly proud of the armed forces community here in Charnwood, and Armed Forces Day is the perfect opportunity to show our deepest gratitude to those who have previously served our country and who continue to do so."

"I look forward to seeing many residents enjoying the activities planned in the market place on Saturday."

Charnwood Borough Council signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2013 and works in partnership with Melton and Rushcliffe borough councils to help develop and support the Armed Forces community and ensure that military personnel do not face any disadvantage as a result of their service.
