The Armed Forces Day for Children event in Catterick Garrison has been a highlight of our year since 2015 when we did a small VE Day Celebration at Le Cateau Primary School with children attending from Wavell Junior School and Hipswell Primary School.  Since then the event has grown - last year we had 1,000 children from schools across North Yorkshire on a field in Catterick Garrison climbing on vehicles, trying on uniforms, eating lunch prepared by Army chefs and being entertained by Army musicians.  This year we had to cancel the event because of Covid-19 which made us sad so we thought we would share the photos and thank you letters from the last few years to cheer ourselves up!  Can't wait for next year!
