Fetes & Forces

Before going along to the Deal Armed Forces Day service, I enjoyed going to the Walmer Fete. I chatted with John Trickey about the carnival and congratulated the the carnival queen and princesses on how well turned out they were. The Deal AFC band were amazing, as ever and are pictured. It was a successful fete – congratulations to the organisers.


Afterwards it was the celebration of our Armed Forces in Deal (the previous weekend I had been in Dover)

There was a very moving service with a parade of standards. Across the nation as a whole this was an important weekend. It marks the recognition and gratitude to those who serve and have served our country in the armed forces.
