Riviera ARC will be paying our respects to Her Majesty’s Armed Forces on National Armed Forces Day this Saturday 30th June. We will be operating from Little Haldon, close to the former site of RAF Haldon, a wartime station.

To the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, and Royal Air Force we give our deepest thanks for their service, past and present.
