Supporting the Armed Forces Community
Folkestone Town Council signed up to the Armed Forces’ Covenant on 16 March 2017, committing to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community, recognising the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and country.
Folkestone Town Council has always been an ‘Armed Forces Friendly’ organisation and actively promotes the Armed Forces and Cadets via a strong programme of civic and community events which evidences how they Respect and Remember. For example, annual services and events for Normandy D-Day, Armed Forces Day, Canada Day, VJ Day, Battle of Britain Day and Remembrance Day Services.
The Council has therefore received a bronze award from the Armed Forces’ Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) in acknowledgement of its support.
