Armed Forces Day
Sunday 21st June 2015
Bents Park, South Shields NE33 2LD
 

Once again the crowds turned out for our 7th annual Armed Forces Day and thanks to the generosity of all who attended, this year we are able to donate £7000 to Support Our Soldiers Charity which means since our 1st AFD  in 2009 we have donated the magnificent sum of £42,000 to SOS just from these events!

It began with the spectacular sight of 100s of motorbikes, trikes, and scooters riding along the seafront into Bents Park followed by the troops, veterans, pipes & drums and a brass band.
   
 
 
    
 
 
 
After a short service and the ‘last post’ the fun began with a performance by The Rock Choir then JayBe. The entertainment carried on throughout the day with live music. There was also a kiddie’s funfair, lots of trade and charity stands, custom shows and military vehicles
 
   
 
 
We also had on display, a WW1 tank as well as a display by Yesterday’s Heroes.
