Flying the flag for Armed Forces Day

The official Armed Forces Day flag will be flying all week outside County Hall in Taunton to honour serving troops, families, veterans and cadets.

Cllr Christine Lawrence, the Chairman of Somerset County Council, raised the flag earlier today at the start of celebrations in the build-up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June.

Cllr Lawrence said: “It is a great privilege to raise this flag as a small gesture of thanks to our Armed Forces.

“I think I speak for everyone in Somerset when I say how grateful we are to all the men and women who do so much at home and abroad to keep us safe.”
