Corby Town Council held their very first celebration of Armed Forces Day on Saturday 25th June 2022.

Working with RBL Northants, a service was held at the War Memorial in Corby Old Village which was hosted by Cllr Alison Dalziel.

There were performances from Piper Michelle Murray Jewell, Louise May, Lynnette and Will Ballantyne with reflective words from Rev Paul Frost just before dignitaries from RBL Northants County Chair and Standard Bearer, Corby Masonic Club, Royal Lancers, Corby Town Council Mayor and Corby Labour Party laid wreaths.

The event was open to all with everyone attending the service, invited back to the Ex- Servicemen's club for refreshments.

Also, to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the Falklands recently, Ex-serviceman Des Wallington gave a talk about his time served there with memorabilia on show.

Corby Town Council would like to thank everyone who helped make this event happen and if anyone would like to be involved next year, please email
