Armed Forces Day

What a wonderful day we had in Shildon today celebrating Armed Forces Day and the re-establishment of the local branch of the British Legion.  I needn’t have worried – I didn’t drop the new standard!  It was a great privilege to meet our two new Chelsea Pensioner friends who had come up from London especially to help us celebrate this important day.  Timothy Hackworth Park looked really good, despite the grey skies.  My thanks as mayor to everyone who made this very special day possible.
