COTSWOLD District Council will be celebrating this year’s Armed Forces Day in Moreton.

There will be a flag raising ceremony at the Moreton Area Centre at noon on Monday June 25.

At both venues the public will be given the opportunity to show their support for the work of the Army, Navy and RAF.

Council chairman Cllr Julian Beale will make a short speech and then raise the flag at both venues.

Each ceremony will be attended by local representatives of the armed forces, local schools, and senior officials from the council.

Since its introduction in 2009, Armed Forces Day has become a national institution.

This is the fifth year running that the council has staged a ceremony at Moreton as well as Cirencester.
