Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is flying the flag this week in support of the Armed Forces.
 
Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Alderman John Smyth was honoured to raise the Armed Forces Day Flag today, which will fly at both civic buildings for one week, leading up to national Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June.
 
Alderman Smyth said;

“Our Council has a strong association with the armed forces and it was a huge privilege to raise the flag today on behalf of the citizens of the Borough. By supporting the Fly the Flag campaign, we are demonstrating our appreciation of the courage and bravery borne by our forces, from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.”

 

“This week, we will join hundreds of local authorities and organisations throughout the UK taking part in the campaign. This flag is our acknowledgement of vital work these men and women do in ensuring our safety and protecting us from harm at home and abroad. So I encourage you to take time this week and remember all those who have given their lives for this country, thank those who serve today and inspire those in training for service in the future.”
