Fun for all the family at Armed Forces Day event

Published 5th June 2018

People are invited to show their support for Britain's armed forces community at a special event in West Bromwich.

The event will be held in Dartmouth Park to mark Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30 June, with children's activities and entertainment all planned.

A military parade will start the event at 11am, so allow enough time to arrive on site and get a good position to watch the parade.

After the formal part of the event, people will be able to enjoy a family fun day running until 4pm with various stalls and attractions. It's free entry with a small charge for some activities.

Councillor Bill Gavan, Sandwell Council's cabinet member for leisure, said: "This is a great opportunity for people to come along and support our armed forces community. We hope that there will be a good turnout.

"People can see the parade and then get involved with some family fun entertainment in one of our fantastic Green Flag-awarded parks."
