The direct connection to our council and borough communities gives us immense pride.

Councillor Derek Bastiman

Scarborough is gearing up to host next year’s national Armed Forces Day event and council leader Councillor Derek Bastiman said locals were keen to see the distinctive outline of the destroyer – star of the recent Channel 5 documentary Warship: Life at Sea – off the coast.

The affiliation couldn’t be a more fitting match as Leading Seaman Tim Phillips – the son of one of our Cabinet members, Cllr Heather Phillips – has joined the ship’s crew,” he continued.

“The direct connection to our council and borough communities gives us immense pride.”
