Armed Forces Celebration Parade

Yesterday, local people gathered in Church Square to show their appreciation and support for St Helens’ Armed Forces community at a special celebration event.

The event, which ran from 10am to 4pm included the display of a field gun from local 103 Regiment Royal Artillery Reserves, vintage military vehicles, and a free climbing wall to test your military fitness.

Representatives of The Royal Navy, The British Army and The Royal Air Force were on hand to meet with the public and answer questions. There were stalls from The Royal British Legion, SSAFA Forces Help, The Royal Marines Association, The Naval Families Federation and SAMS St Helens Armed Forces Hub.

The day kicked off with a parade, followed by a service. Music was provided by the Valley Brass Band along with Eleanor Nelly and Daisy Hatton.
