This year’s Cornwall’s Armed Forces Day will take place on Saturday (June 20th) at Thanckes Park, Torpoint.
In the lead up to the event the town will fly the flag from the masthead in the town centre.
We are delighted to have been chosen to host the County’s Armed Forces Day, honouring our military personnel, past, present and future.
We hope to build on the successful events we’ve have held in the park, such as our Golden Jubilee celebrations.
