Attention! Calling all Armed Forces families

A free weekend of family fun is being lined-up by Clacton Pier later
this month for all Armed Forces families.

It is the Pier’s way of thanking the forces for all that they do for the
country through the year and follows-on from a similar event staged for the
Emergency Services in June.

These weekends have been staged for a number of years now and have
proved very popular.

A valid ID card needs to be produced at the ticket office and then each
forces family will be given four free wristbands worth up to £60.

Live music and children’s entertainment have also been arranged for
September 22 and 23 and military vehicles will be on display.

Ewelina Majewska, the Pier’s Operations Manager, said the offer is open
to all forces families across the country – not just those living in the
Tendring District.

“It is an opportunity for them to get together and come and enjoy a
relaxing fun day on the Pier and make the most of the facilities that are on
offer,” she added.

“It is our way of recognising all that they do for us and we have the
chance to give them something back in return.”

Free music will be provided by Steve Richie on Saturday and Sammy B on
Sunday, while James Magic will be performing on the first day with another
children’s entertainer being booked for the Sunday.
