Marking the 10th anniversary of the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant, County Council Leader Richard Roberts has signed a renewed pledge to Hertfordshire’s Armed Forces Community.

Signing this document pledged a commitment from all signatories to continue to work with the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant Board to ensure that members of the Armed Forces community are recognised and remembered for their sacrifice, not disadvantaged when accessing services and that the military and civilian communities are well integrated.

Invited by the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant Board Chairman Councillor Terry Douris, the Leader added his signature at an event during Armed Forces Week this year.  Alongside District and Borough Council leaders, military leaders and representatives from NHS, Police, business, charities, and military charities, Councillor Richard Roberts reaffirmed the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant.

Hertfordshire County Council is a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award winner, which is the highest badge of honour offered to those employing and supporting the Armed Forces Community.
