Reflecting on the event, the Mayor said: “As one of my first official engagements as Mayor, it was a privilege to be a part of this service and show support for those who currently serve in the Armed Forces along with their families, veterans and cadets. Armed Forces Week is an important opportunity to show our solidarity with the Armed Forces community, and helps to ensure that the service of so many men and women is never forgotten.
