Hailsham town councillors joined residents at a special service held on Saturday [24th June] to support Armed Forces Day 2017.
The civic service was conducted at the Hailsham War Memorial, at which thanks were given for the contribution made by members of the Armed Forces, past and in the present, in serving the country.
Deputy Town Mayor Councillor Amanda O’Rawe said: “Local councillors are always honoured to, alongside members of the public, commemorate the heroics of so many men and women who make up the Armed Forces community including veterans, serving troops and their families and new recruits.”
“It’s wonderful that people turn out each year to celebrate Armed Forces Week and show their support.”
