Armed Forces Community Covenant Signing Ceremony

This morning I had the pleasure of attending the signing of the Suffolk Armed Forces Community Covenant.  The Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of support between a civilian population and its local Armed Forces Community. 

The signing is designed to complement the National Armed Forces Covenant that outlines the moral obligation between the Nation, the Government and the Armed Forces at a local level.

The purpose of this Community Covenant is to encourage support for the Armed Forces Community of serving personnel, Veterans, their families and widow(er)s working and residing in Suffolk and to recognise and remember the sacrifices made by members of this Armed Forces Community, particularly those who have given the most.

The Covenant is an agreement between the county of Suffolk, representatives of the charitable and voluntary sectors, us as residents of Suffolk and the Armed Forces Community in here in our County.

I passionately believe we should recognise the contribution of the Armed Forces for and across Suffolk and I know from conversations with Councillors across the County that we all hare this view whatever party we are from.
