A message from the Bridlington Community Armed Forces Day group:

On Saturday 9th July 2022, the itinerary will be as follows:

Bridlington Armed Forces Day parade will step off at 1200hrs from alongside the war memorial gardens in Bridlington, parading through town, passing the Saluting Dias at the Yacht Club, where the VIPs, serving and retired, commissioned officers and a non commissioned officer, will take the salute, from veterans, serving personnel, ex military vehicles, cadets from throughout the town, scout’s, guides and any other organisations wishing to march.

The parade will finish on the slope leading down to the Promenade, next to Richie’s Cafe-bar about 1225hrs.

The RNLI have very kindly offered to put both of their boats on the beach for the day, allowing the area in front of the RNLI station to be used to display the ten or so ex military vehicles and displays of militaria.

On the area above Richie’s Cafe-Bar there will be stalls from various ex military associations.

At the Yacht Club opposite the Spa there will be the Legion Riders Motorcycles and other ex service associations. There will also be live entertainment, outside the Yacht Club throughout the afternoon.

At 1400hrs, subject to aircraft availability and the weather, there will be a fly past of vintage military and civilian aircraft.

As ever, this only happens because of the group of volunteers that give up their, time, fuel and enthusiasm to allow the parade and displays to go ahead. A grant from Bridlington Town Council pays for the public liability insurance required.

Last but not least, thanks to the good people of Bridlington that support the Armed Forces of the past present and future. It’s our first time on the foreshore,let’s see if we can make it our best ever.

If anyone wishes to help,with road marshalling or can help in any other way or have a military vehicle they wish to display,we are on Facebook, search ‘Bridlington Community Armed Forces Day’ -either comment on there or message or email:

Many thanks again for all involved in Bridlington Armed Forces Day.

We may not be as big as Scarborough AFD, but we were pleased to be able to loan our VIP from a few years ago to fly the Merlin for the 100 days to Scarborough AFD, LT Phil Fordham RN, a local lad serving as a pilot in the RN.
