Pavilion To Open For Armed Forces Day
12:02am 2nd June 2013
It's been confirmed that Weymouth Pavilion will be used on a one off basis for the Armed Forces Day celebrations in the Borough later this month.
The complex which officially closed on Friday will open up its doors to veterans over the weekend of the 22nd.
Cllr Ian Bruce, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Tourism and Culture brief holder, said: "I am delighted that the pavilion will be used on this one-off basis to host the veterans during the weekend. It will provide a central location for the veterans to make sure they are comfortable and looked after properly and will help make sure the event runs smoothly.
"This is an opportunity to show our respect and appreciation to all the hardworking service men and women past and present who have represented our country through the years and I would encourage everyone to come down and join in the celebrations.
"There has been a considerable amount of work and commitment behind the scenes and once again the borough's fabulous ability to deliver top class events has been truly recognised. I would like to thank the Ministry of Defence for their generous £10,000 donation."
