Residents across West Northants are invited to join in celebrations to mark Armed Forces Week. 

In the week leading up to Armed Forces Day (Saturday, 29 June) West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) will be organising a series of events aimed at celebrating and supporting the local Armed Forces Community including veterans, serving personnel, reserve forces, cadets, and their families. 

To mark Armed Forces week WNC will host flag-raising events at Sessions House in Northampton, The Abbey in Daventry, and at the Forum in Towcester on Monday, 24 June from 10am. Each event will start with the opening remarks of a Deputy-Lieutenant, followed by a speech from the Chairman or a representative.  

Members of the Armed Forces Community can also access free guided tours of County Hall.  The tours will take place on Monday, 24 June at 4 pm and on Wednesday, 26 June at 4 pm.
