Armed Forces Day

In June we took a trip to the Macclesfield Cenotaph with our resident Pat to pay our respects to members of the armed forces both past and present. With an army instructor for a father, Pat was born and raised in a military household, and later went on to marry an army officer. Throughout her life, Pat travelled the world alongside her husband Bill as he served in Hong Kong, India, Nepal and Northern Ireland. About the visit to the cenotaph, Pat said: ‘This was a really special trip for me as it is something very close to my heart.’
