Honour for local soldiers

Have your say

CHESTERFIELD will welcome the 575 Field Squadron on Saturday as they exercise their Freedom of Entry into the borough.

The 575 Sherwood Foresters Field Squadron will parade outside the Town Hall at 11am, when the Freedom Scroll will be presented by the Mayor of Chesterfield Councillor Donald Parsons.

The squadron will then march through the town centre, ending at the Town Hall with a parade at noon.

Representatives of the 575 Field Squadron and their families will be invited to attend a reception in the Town Hall afterwards.

Coun Parsons said: “We will be delighted to welcome the 575 Squadron to Chesterfield and are honoured and proud to have a close association with these dedicated men and women.”
