ON Saturday, June 30, a parade of ex-services associations, Standard Bearers, Veterans and Cadet Forces will march along Redcar High Street to begin the celebrations for Armed Forces Day.

The parade will march from the Town's 'Blue Clock' along the High Street to the iconic main clock for the official opening of Armed Forces Day by the Mayor of Redcar & Cleveland, Councillor Denise Bunn at 10.30am.

The Town will also be treated to a spectacular coastal fly-past as a Second World War Tiger Moth plane is set to soar above the crowds on the seafront, during the day of events marking the dedication of service personnel.

The Mayor of Redcar & Cleveland, Councillor Denise Bunn, said: "It is a real honour to be part of this very special day, to mark the dedication of our Armed Forces past, present and future. There are plenty of activities and entertainment to look forward to and I look forward to welcoming our service men and women to the Town."

The High Street area will also feature stalls and displays from a number of military groups including the Royal British Legion, the Army and Sea Cadets and many other charity associations.

There will also be a drill display competition between the Cadet Forces and a whole host of family entertainment.
