Residents across West Northants are invited to join in celebrations to mark Armed Forces Week. 
On Saturday 24 June, the Council will be supporting Northampton Town Council for the county Armed Forces Day parade through the town centre. The event will provide an opportunity for members of the public to find out more about the Armed Forces, including the local Reserve unit, 103 Battalion REME who train at Clare Street in Northampton. 
Cllr David Smith, Armed Forces Covenant Member Champion and Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Engagement and Regulatory Service at WNC, said: “This annual celebration of our Armed Forces is the nation’s opportunity to thank our brave serving military, reservists, veterans, cadets, and their families. 
“The Northamptonshire Armed Forces Covenant Board, of which we are a partner, works to support the active and retired Armed Forces community living and working in the county and we’re proud to show our appreciation through this work. 
“Many of us will take time on Saturday, 24 June to remember what an important role our serving military, their families and our veterans play in our community, and to our country. I want to take this opportunity to honour them, and to say thank you for everything they do.” 
Young people and families can also get involved by printing off one of the Armed Forces Day colouring-in sheets from the Armed Forces Day website. 
Businesses can also show their support to the Armed Forces by signing the Covenant, for more information visit the Armed Forces Northants website for more details.
