Sunday 22nd June 2014 saw our 6th annual Armed Forces Day which was welcomed by warm sunny weather.
 
 
After a cavalcade of bikes (300+ this year) we had the troops followed by pipes & drums marching into the park to the applause of 100s of spectators.
 
 

Throughout the day we were entertained by The Rock Choir, 99th Garrison then by local rock bands and a performance by JayBe.
 
  
 
  
 
 

There was plenty to see including military displays & vehicles, custom shows & classic cars.
 
 
 
 

 
 

Thanks to the support of local businesses, South Tyneside Council, the North East Coalition of Motor Cycle Clubs and the thousands of visitors the day
was a huge success.
 
 
 
  
 

 

Thanks to that generosity, we were able to present a cheque to our chosen charity Support Our Soldiers for a massive £10,000!!
 
 

A notable event on the day was a visit from The Patriots, a group of bikers who are all ex/ serving armed forces men & women who were from all over the UK as well as Germany, Netherlands, Holland, Belgium, Canada & Australia!
 

 
 

 
 
A very proud day!
