Mansfield on parade this Saturday

Mansfield’s Parade for Heroes this Saturday is set to create a fantastic spectacle of sound and colour as the district gets the chance to show its appreciation for the armed forces fighting in our name.

The parade is being held to try to raise £5,000 on the day for forces charity, Help for Heroes - and will feature soldiers from 2nd Battalion Mercian Regiment wearing their new uniforms in preparation for returning to Afghanistan in October.
