ARMED forces families will benefit from discounted access to summer activities this year.

Service families stuck for ideas on how to entertain kids this summer can choose from hundreds of activities at top attractions across the area.

More than 1,750 companies have shown their support for the armed forces by signing up to the Defence Discount Service. There are also discounts for travel using National Express and cheap cinema tickets.

Lord Astor, the parliamentary under secretary for defence, said: ‘I hope armed forces families enjoy the exclusive deals and I would encourage every business to show their support by joining the discount service.’
