Armed Forces Covenant

The Trust has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, making a commitment to honour the Armed Forces and support the Armed Forces community.

The covenant recognises the value serving personnel, veterans and military families contribute to our country. The charity continues to develop links with HQ 7th Infantry Brigade at Chetwynd Barracks, Chilwell, Nottingham.

The Cricket & Countryside Days were again supported by Major Julie Downing and five service personnel of the Royal Signals, delivering exciting team building exercises.
