At the end of September, the Lord-Lieutenant was pleased to attend the SERFCA Lord-Lieutenant’s Awards Ceremony at the Salomons Estate. The evening was an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of many outstanding individuals. The Lord-Lieutenant was most impressed by the demonstration of the volunteer ethos shown by the worthy recipients.

The 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 Lord-Lieutenant also met with her new Lord-Lieutenant Cadets and congratulated them on their achievement. The County has an outstanding Cadet force and these cadets are able to flourish because of the dedication of the Adult Volunteers.

Congratulations to all the winners from the evening and to SERFCA for a wonderful event.
