I attended the Armed Forces Flag Raising Day parade on the very wet morning of June 20.
It was very well organised and I was pleased to see about 20 young children from the local school. Despite being soaked, they behaved very well and were a credit to their school and parents.
A special mention has to be made of the two cadets who made the readings, they spoke loudly and with confidence, they also, accompanied by another cadet, made a splendid job of raising the Armed Forces Day flag.
Despite the weather, I am pleased to have made the effort along with all the other organisations to attend. We all hope for better weather next year.
