Our event is held with the aim of bringing together the Armed Forces, Veterans and the surrounding communities in our area – in order to celebrate the work the armed forces do and as a way of the local people to say thank you for all the hard efforts and endeavour they have done and currently do around the world and in the UK.

So may we welcome you to Burton Armed Forces and Veterans Day. This has become a major event in the village of Burton, Dorset and began in 2007. This special day was created to celebrate our veterans, to recognise the contribution they made to our lives, to our community and to pause and to reflect just for a few moments to consider our serving personal.
