Have you ever thought how some events not only provide something to keep the family occupied, but also provide an opportunity to reflect and take pride?
Yes? That's good, because this weekend we're taking pride in Swansea.
It's Armed Forces Day tomorrow (28 June) and in Swansea we're commemorating the sacrifices our military have made with a day of special displays and entertainment in Castle Square, culminating in flag raising ceremony followed by a procession through the city centre led by the 215 City of Swansea Squadron Military Band.
Show your support. Displays open at 9.00am and the first stage act begins at 10.00am.
Pride in our diversity
