Today is Armed Forces Day, an opportunity for all of us to express our gratitude, admiration, and our support to the men and women who have answered the noble call of service.

The Armed Forces Flag flies proudly over Sheffield Town Hall from 26 June to 3 July.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, planned events are unable to go ahead this year.

However in recognition of the contribution of all our Armed Forces personnel, Lord Mayor of Sheffield pays heartfelt tribute.

Cllr Downing said: “Not just today, but every day, let’s take the time to show our support for our armed forces community military families, and veterans who keep us, or have kept our country safe.

“Thank you all for your service and your sacrifices.

“Sheffield is proud of you.”
