Torpoint will raise the Armed Forces Day Flag today as the town prepares to host Cornwall’s salute to military.

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.

The event promises to be a great day of entertainment for all the family and we are looking forward to welcoming Armed Forces personnel, their families, veterans, cadets and members of the general public from across Cornwall and further afield.

– Councillor Mike Pearn
