Heroes Welcome in Test Valley

The Council has signed up to support the national Heroes Welcome campaign. The initiative aims to encourage local organisations and businesses to provide a warm welcome to members of the armed forces and their families.

In summer 2012, the Council also signed the Armed Forces Community Covenant. The Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual agreement between all those who sign it. It signals their commitment to work together to honour, support and help the armed forces and their families, recognising the sacrifices they make and remembering that some pay the ultimate sacrifice.

For more information or to sign up to the scheme please visit the Heroes Welcome website.
