In October 2022, SERFCA held the Lord-Lieutenant’s Awards Ceremony at the Salomons Estate to celebrate the achievements of outstanding individuals. The Lord-Lieutenant was most impressed by the demonstration of the volunteer ethos shown by the worthy recipients and thanked them for their devoted service to their community.

Reserves are a vital asset to the nation, contributing to its security, its safety and its place in the world. Reservists are well-respected and well-rewarded: they enjoy the kind of challenge and comradeship which are rare in civilian life and yet are able to balance military service with their responsibilities to their families and civilian careers.

The Cadets provide fantastic opportunities to both the cadets and their volunteer instructors and the cadets flourish because of the dedication of the Adult Volunteers.

The Lord-Lieutenant would like to thank SERFCA for organising this wonderful event where the achievements of so many were celebrated.
