Representatives of the armed forces will be parading through the streets of Sidmouth to a special ‘drumhead service’ at The Ham.

The annual Armed Forces Day event takes place on Saturday, June 30 and will include members of the Royal British Legion and the Army cadets.

The service will be led by the Reverend Robert Chavaner and parade marshall will be Ralph Hickman.

The parade assembles at 11.15am outside the Co-op in the High Street.

They will parade down the High Street, along the Esplanade and to The Ham, where the service will take place at 12 noon.

Everyone is invited to attend and programmes will be available. An Army cadet will be doing a reading and another will lay a wreath.

Dave O’Connor, chairman of Sidmouth Royal British Legion, said: “I think it’s a way of saying thank you to our troops for all they have been through and what they are still going through both mentally and physically.”
