A town council signed its Armed Forces Covenant last month, pledging its support to local servicemen and women.

Members of Redenhall with Harleston Town Council signed the Armed Forces Covenant in the presence of representatives from the Royal British Legion (RBL) and the Armed Forces.

A spokesperson for the council said: “By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, the council is demonstrating commitment that it recognises the value of serving personnel, reservists, veterans, and military families; and will aim to uphold the principles by seeking to look to appoint an Armed Forces Champion to promote and support the Armed Forces community.”

It comes less than a fortnight after more than 1,000 people attended the Remembrance Day parade in Harleston, which was organised jointly by the council and the RBL.
