Powys Celebrates Armed Forces Day with a message from the Armed Forces Champion Cllr Rosemarie Harris
"As leader of Powys County Council, Powys Armed Forces Champion and on behalf of the Covenant Regional Partnership Powys, I would like to take this opportunity on Armed Forces Day on 27th June 2020, to recognise and give sincere thanks and support to the British Armed Forces. The Armed Forces have been there during these unprecedented times both Nationally and here in Powys. Armed Forces Day is usually marked by events across the UK, unfortunately these will be affected this year.
Armed Forces Day celebrations began on Monday 22 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. In Wales, celebrations were due to take place on the 4-5 July at the Wales Air Show, this is now is a digital Celebration http://www.walesnationalairshow.com/app/.
The Covenant Partnership would usually be getting ready for the Brecon Military Show, at the Infantry Battle School, which brings together Military Personnel here in Powys and the Community, I hope that we will be able to meet again in 2021."
