MVS Rushden at the Heart of Armed Forces Day

Months of hard work has paid off for MVS Rushden as the unit successfully organised Armed Forces Day in the Northamptonshire town.

The support from the local community who lined the streets for the parade was overwhelming.

The event was opened by local MP Peter Bone and the town Mayor Richard Lewis at Rushden Railway Station which is now a heritage station at the end of a short running line.

MVS National Communications Manager, John Spencer-Barnes said “It was an amazing achievement by Head of Unit  Maurice Weight and his team in Rushden.

Many people told me how impressed they were by the quality of the day and the commitment shown by our volunteers.

It was deeply gratifying to see how the town has taken the unit and the MVS to its heart.”

MVS Rushden is one of our newest units and the only one not based on the coast.
