A CELEBRATION to mark Armed Forces Day is aiming to bring together all ages at an afternoon to mark the event.

Seaham Town Park will host the activities from noon until 6.30pm on Saturday.

The Seaham Remember Them Fund is working on the plans with Seaham Town Council and the Ministry of Defence.

It will start with a Drum Head Service parade through the park, past the restored war memorial.

Murton Colliery Brass Band will play throughout and the car park will be filled with rides for children, stalls and a beer tent.

There will also be live music provided by the Mill Inn buskers from 1pm to 3pm.

Pit banners will also be on display ahead of Durham Miners’ Gala on Saturday, July 13.
