Support for armed forces

MIDLOTHIAN Council has joined local armed forces community representatives in agreeing to sign Midlothian’s first Armed Forces Community Covenant.

The official signing of the Community Covenant will take place in January.

The Community Covenant aims to bring organisations together and encourages support for the armed forces community, working and residing in Midlothian.

Provost Adam Montgomery, joint-chair of the Armed Forces Covenant for Midlothian group, said they hoped to develop their existing relationships.
