This is our opportunity to show them our support, celebrate their contribution and to give our thanks for the magnificent role our armed forces play every day and the sacrifices made by so many.  We hope people come to Shipley and support this event.”

Joe Ashton, Town Clerk for Shipley Town Council added: “We’re delighted to be hosting this year’s Armed Forces Day event in Shipley and look forward to a great day showing our respect and gratitude for those who have served and who continue to serve in our armed forces.”
