Farnham proudly honoured members of the armed forces with a special flag-raising ceremony on Monday (24 June).

Flag-raising ceremonies took place all over the UK and mark a week of national activities aimed at showing appreciation for the armed forces.

Farnham’s flag-raising was led by the Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Brodie Mauluka and brought together Deputy Lieutenant Brig. Paul Evans OBE, members of the community and service personnel.

Children from Badshot Lea Infants School assisted the Mayor with unfurling the Armed Forces flag on the front of Farnham Town Hall.

The Mayor said: “Our flag-raising event is an important annual occasion and is an opportunity for Farnham to show its support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community and to pay tribute to their courage and dedication.”

The week of celebrations ends on Saturday with Armed Forces Day which is being held in Scarborough.
