On behalf of the town council I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported the Armed Forces Day event organised by the town council’s Armed Forces Day Working Party.
Donations and raffle prizes which were generously given by local businesses, councillors and individuals all helped to support a very successful day.
Despite a number of problems with venues encountered at the very last minute which were outside the town council’s control, we managed to reallocate the cadets force displays to Pannett Park and residents and visitors were treated to a spectacular day, culminating in a flypast from a WW2 Spitfire.
Whitby Town Council’s Armed Forces Day Working Party has already met and plans are forming for Amred Forces Day on 29 June 2013 which we anticipate will be an even bigger and better thank you to our armed forces.
Councillor John Freeman, Town Mayor, Whitby
