Carnforth celebrates Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th April at the War Memorial Gardens.
Everyone attending was welcolmed with a Cri from our Town Crier followed by a reminder by the Town Mayor, Councillor Kath Bromilow as to why we were celebrating our Armed Forces, past and present.
There were hymns and prayers led by the Rev Bob Neale and Father Christie Murghi. Music was provided by the Salvation Army, including the Last Post/Reveille, when a wreath was laid by the Town Mayor on behalf of Carnforth Town Council.
Finally, Councillor Major Malcolm Watkins gave a poignant and thought provoking sermon about the lives of serving armed forces personnel and their families and why we owe then so much for protecting us and our freedom.
The Service was followed by drinks and cake at the Royal Station Hotel. A lovely couple of hours!
