Port Of Manchester at Armed Forces Week flag raising

Chris Todd with the ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Cllr Peter Connor, armed Forces Week 2017

The Port Of Manchester unit started Armed Forces week by our Vice Chair Chris Todd representing the Unit at the Armed Forces Flag Raising event at the Civic Centre in Salford.

“A very dignified ceremony” commented Chris, “After the flag raising it was just time for the minutes silence in memory of those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Fire.
As well as chatting with Cllr Peter Connor, Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, I was also able to make contact with the new MP for Salford and Eccles along with the Lord Lieutenants Office for Greater Manchester.”

The Unit will be on show at the Armed Force event in Winton Park this Saturday.
