Army servicemen returning from a tour of Afghanistan are set to parade through Stevenage.

Stevenage Borough Council is inviting members of the public to show their support for the armed forces tomorrow (Thursday).

Beginning at the Ibis Hotel at 12.15pm, the regiment will make its way down The Forum and along Queensway before assembling for a salute.

The regiment, which has been given the Freedom of Entry, will then gather in Town Square for the salute at 12.30pm.

Stevenage mayor Sherma Batson said: “I’m delighted that the Royal Anglian Regiment will be parading through our town centre and I hope that the people of Stevenage come out and show their support by joining us for the 12.30pm salute.”
