The crucial role of the Armed Forces both past and present is being recognised at County Hall, Haverfordwest.

The Armed Forces Flag was raised on Tuesday June 20th and will continue flying for Armed Forces Day on Saturday, 24th June. 

Among those attending the flag raising were serving members of 14th Signal Regiment based at Cawdor Barracks and children from Armed Forces families who attend Haverfordwest High VC School and Prendergast Community School.

Cllr Simon Hancock, the Council’s Member Champions for Armed Forces, also attended. He said: “We are delighted to fly the Armed Forces Flag over County Hall once again.

“Pembrokeshire is a county with a proud military history that continues into the present day.

“Armed Forces Day is a great opportunity to show our support for serving members of the forces, their families, reservists, veterans and cadets.”

As Armed Forces Champion, Cllr Hancock provides a voice for Armed Forces personnel, veterans and their families to ensure that group is taken into account when Council decisions are made.

Pembrokeshire County Council is proud to have achieved the prestigious Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Silver Award in 2022.

The accolade recognises employers who have actively demonstrated their support for the Armed Forces community through implementing practical policies in the workplace.
