Flying the flag for Armed Forces

Wycombe District Council will join thousands of organisations up and down the country in raising the Armed Forces flag outside its offices on Monday 25 June to mark the start of Armed Forces Week.

Residents are welcome to come along to a short static parade at 2.15pm outside the council offices on Queen Victoria Road to celebrate and pay tribute to the dedication of servicemen and women past, present and future.

Monday’s event will include a short parade attended by the High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Ruth Farwell, RAF personnel and representatives from local branches of the Royal British Legion.

The Chairman of Wycombe District Council, Cllr Tony Green, said: “We’re proud to be raising this special flag to show our support for Armed Forces Week.

 “There is always a good turnout from young and old, including veterans and active service men and women. We look forward to welcoming members of the public who want to come along and celebrate with us the great work of these brave men and women.

 “Within the district we have always enjoyed particularly strong links with the RAF based at Walter’s Ash who have held the Freedom of the District since 2012.”
