Firefighters, based at the station on Maltravers Road, will be joining many more uniformed services to pay tribute to members of the Armed Forces, past and present.
Littlehampton Armed Forces Day is an annual event now in its eighth year. This year, the event, organised by Littlehampton Town Council in partnership with Harbour Park, will take place on June 24th between 10.30am and 4.30pm on the Seafront Greens.
The day will begin with a seafront parade and a Drumhead Service on the green. There will be lots of activities for all the family including: arena displays, band performances, a charity fair, military vehicles, stunt displays, memorabilia, a flypast and a spectacular aerobatic display.
Watch Manager Chris Barker, says: “It’s an honour to be supporting Littlehampton Armed Forces Day and we’re really looking forward to meeting everyone who is able to come and join us on the day.
“We will be on the green promoting fire safety and offering advice and guidance to residents. We will also be running a rowing challenge against any members of the public who are ready and willing to take on our crew!”
