RESIDENTS can lay wreaths throughout the week to pay respects to those who have served in the armed forces.

Barnsley marked the start of celebrations ahead of Armed Forces Day by raising the flag at the town hall.

It’s Armed Forced Day on Saturday, and although celebrations will be different this year due to coronavirus restrictions, you can lay your wreaths throughout the week to show respect to our armed forces communities.
