Army reservists, cadets and ex-servicemen and women marched through the streets as part of the borough's Armed Forces Day celebrations yesterday.

A flag raising ceremony at Hendon Town Hall, in The Burroughs, was followed by the parade.

The Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Hugh Rayner, raised a flag above the town hall as a symbol of support and recognition for those serving in the armed forces.

Cllr Rayner said: "Armed Forces Day gives all of us a chance to acknowledge the many achievements of Her Majesty’s armed forces to recognise their current contribution and offer prayers for their wellbeing and continued success.”

Barnet councillors, MPs and Barnet's Deputy Lieutenant Martin Russell also attended the event.
