At the start of Armed Forces Week, Mayor Dan Jarvis thanks our Armed Forces for their service in the Coronavirus pandemic.

South Yorkshire Mayor and Parachute Regiment veteran Dan Jarvis thanks our Armed Forces for the work they are doing to support communities during the Coronavirus crisis as we mark Armed Forces Week.

Commenting, Mayor Jarvis said: “Although we are unable to gather in person to thank our Armed Forces this week, I hope that everyone will take part in the virtual Armed Forces Week events that are being lined up.

“I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the brave men and women who serve our country and put their lives on the line to keep our country safe.

“From providing vital flood relief to communities under water last November; to running mobile Covid-19 testing during the current crisis – our Armed Forces are doing an amazing job in incredibly challenging circumstances. This week, please show your support for them.”
