A ceremony is to be staged in Clacton to demonstrate Tendring’s on-going support for the country’s Armed Forces.
Organisations, Councillors and residents are being invited to stand side by side outside the Town Hall on Monday 25 June.
A special Armed Forces Flag will be hoisted from the flagpole in Station Road at 11am.
It is anticipated that a number of organisations will be attending the ceremony with their own Standards.
The ceremony will be followed by a coffee and cake sale in the Town Hall foyer, with funds raised supporting the Help for Heroes' Bake for Heroes initiative.
The Armed Forces Flag will be flown throughout the week, leading up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30 June.
The Council will also be flying a British Armed Forces Flag at its Weeley offices.
