Crowds turn out for Beverley Armed Forces Day

The seventh Beverley Armed Forces Day is taking place in the town today. The event had been under threat after a funding shortfall, but thanks to support of local residents and community groups, enough money was raised for the day to go ahead.

The Defence School of Transport based in Leconfield is exercising its Freedom of the Borough accompanied by veterans and members of the Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force.

The support from residents and community groups has been tremendous and I would like to thank them all for ensuring the event goes ahead. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who year after year help put the event on from those that move seats and barriers to performers who all give up their time without financial reward.

– Cllr David K Elvidge, Chairman of the Beverley Armed Forces Day
