We are inviting the public to come down and celebrate the lives of servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving in the Armed Forces. We have arranged a fun day for both adults and children, bouncy castles, face painting, live music and much much more. The main event is a memorial rugby game between the world record winning team Scotty’s Rugby vs Caerleon RFC select for the Cpl Mike Thacker Cup.
