The Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor and the Chairman of the Council, Cllr Bilqees Mauthoor, raised the Armed Forces flag today (June 21, 2021) to show appreciation for the work of servicemen past and present.

The council are flying the flag as part of Armed Forces Week (June 21 to June 27), the annual national campaign that gives everyone the opportunity to show their support for the men and women of the Armed Forces past and present, including currently serving troops, service families, Reservists, veterans and cadets.

The week is also a chance to recognise the amazing work that the Armed Forces have been doing across Hertfordshire by supporting mobile testing units over the past year and processing hundreds of tests every day to help the NHS save lives.

Chairman of the council, cllr Bilqees Mauthoor said “I want to say on behalf of Watford as a town and its people, to all of our veterans, service personnel, reserves and their families, whether you are at home or overseas, thank you for all that you do. There is pride in our town for those who are serving in our armed forces and respect for our veterans.”

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said “I was proud to raise the flag at Watford Town Hall to mark Armed Forces Week. It’s so important to care for our armed forces personnel, who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe at home and abroad. I also want to thank the Armed Forces for all they have and are doing to support us through this current crisis.”

The UK Armed Forces defend the country and its interests. Every day of the year they are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers and providing security and fighting terrorism. For more information, visit
