Salute the troops

11:23am - 25 June 2021

Show your support to the armed forces by sending a salute.

Armed Forces Day takes place tomorrow (Saturday 26 June).

It’s a chance to show your support to the men and women who make up the armed forces community – from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.

On-going coronavirus restrictions mean parades can’t go ahead but you can still get involved and support the Salute Our Forces campaign.

To join in, simply send a photo or video of yourself or your friends and colleagues saluting, using #SaluteOurForces

You can share your photos on TwitterFacebook or send an email to

We’re showing our support by flying the Armed Forces Day flag from our buildings, the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare and Castlewood office in Clevedon.

Many towns and parishes across North Somerset will also be commemorating so look out for flags in your area or on your local community social media sites.

Showing support for the armed forces provides a morale boost for troops and their families working around the world.
