Sutton’s branch of the Royal British Legion threw open its doors for Armed Forces Day, on Saturday.

The event saw a display of military vehicles and weapons, a parachute display, live music, stalls, games and even a visit by two Chelsea Pensioners.

City of Ely Military Band played for visitors and birds from the Raptor Foundation in St Ives were also on show.

Sharon Bogunovic, from the Sutton Legion, posted on Facebook: “A big thank you to everyone who supported the Armed Forces Day – fantastic weather and a fantastic day. We hope that everyone enjoyed the day.”

The event formed part of a host of activities in the village across the weekend, which also included Sutton Gault Day and a Last Night of the Proms-style event at St Andrew’s Church, both on Sunday.
