LOCAL MP Mark Lancaster has called for residents in Milton Keynes to support Armed Forces Week.
Running from the 24th June and culminating on Saturday for Armed Forces Day, the week aims to raise awareness, celebrate and commemorate the work done by our armed forces.
With two TA units in our city we have a strong link with the Armed Forces. Celebrations started with a Flag Raising Ceremony at the Civic Offices which Mark attended with other local dignitaries and culminate on Saturday where a day of celebrations for Buckinghamshire will be held at the Rugby Club in Aylesbury.
Mark, who is a serving TA solider himself said, "The members of our armed forces do invaluable work and it is extremely important we all recognise and celebrate the work they do to protect our country. I hope everyone across Milton Keynes will show their support to the armed forces community for this week and beyond."
