Gareth marks Armed Forces Day


Today is Armed Forces Day and it is a chance to show our support and gratitude for the men and women who serve and protect our country. To give thanks to those in active service, their families at home and veterans who defend have defended the very freedoms we cherish

In Stoke-on-Trent we are proud of those who have served and continue to serve our country. Not only as your Member of Parliament do I have the privilege to meet serving and retired servicemen and women, but my wife Sophia also works for a national military charity giving me the chance to meet those who have served their country. My grandfather also served in the Navy.

This weekend there will be a series of events celebrating Armed Forces Day.
