Everyone can get involved as Watford is set to mark Armed Forces Day this weekend.

This Saturday (June 24) will see Armed Forces Day celebrated across the UK and is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community.

On Monday (June 19), a brief flag raising ceremony was held at The Watford Peace Memorial, by the Town Hall, with Watford FC legend Luther Blissett, Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Robert Voss, and Watford Mayor Peter Taylor.

The town's festivities are then due to be held in earnest from 12pm until 4.30pm on the day itself with an armed forces community fun day hosted by Luther Blissett and Forces United, a division of The Former Players Club.

The event at Sun Sports & Social Club, in Bellmount Wood Avenue, will feature a 6-a-side football tournament, music, a tug-of-war, a bouncy castle, refreshments, and more.

Luther said: “We owe these men and women and their families so much.

“Forces United was our football response to the voice needed in Watford to represent the interests of those serving.”

Armed Forces Day is celebrated across the country and is observed on the last Saturday of June each year.

The event is also raising money for armed forces projects in the town.
