This week’s column is quite diverse and starts with a request to Peterborough businesses to consider sponsoring our Armed Forces Day events in the city, to make this year’s celebration bigger and better than ever before. Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community, from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. Armed Forces Day takes place this year on Saturday, June 25, and all the events are organised by a number of committed volunteers, freely giving their time. As such, we are entirely dependent upon charitable donations and sponsorship to facilitate events. In previous years there has been a service led by the Mayor of Peterborough at the War Memorial outside the Town Hall. Last year also included a special event in Cathedral Square featuring entertainment, stands, displays, a tea party and parade. Please get in touch if your business or organisation would like to contribute, donate or sponsor an event. Not only will you be showing your support for our armed forces, but you’ll be helping to make this day a tradition for many years to come. Businesses that wish to be involved, or would like to know more regarding donations or sponsorship opportunities, should contact the Mayor’s Office via telephone on our switchboard number of (01733) 747474.
