Everyone from veterans to primary school children marked Armed Forces Day last week.

On Monday, June 24 the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Colonel John Royal and members of the British Legion from Greens Norton, Towcester, Brackley and Roade took part in a flag raising ceremony at the South Northants Council offices in Towcester.

Council chairman David Harries remembered his father and grandfather who fought to ensure we have ‘free speech and that we may sleep safely in our beds’.

Children at Bracken Leas School in Brackley spent time thinking about life in the armed forces by tackling an assault course, decorating ginger bread men as soldiers and listening to a talk by Cheryl Johnson who was in the navy.
