Derbyshire Dales District Council is once again flying the flag for our Armed Forces.
The ceremony was attended by fellow councillors, members of the Royal British Legion and Fellowship of the Services.
The flag-raising was timed to coincide with similar ceremonies across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. The Hall Leys Park flag will remain flying for the rest of the week until Armed Forces Day on Saturday 24 June.
Said Councillor Flitter:
“Armed Forces Day is a chance for us to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, ensuring they are appreciated and recognised.
“The defence of this country and its people are fundamental to our wellbeing and prosperity, and the men and women of our Armed Forces, past and present, have performed superbly in the service of the nation.”
