Civic dignitaries and senior army officers gathered in Clitheroe yesterday to sign the Ribble Valley Armed Forces Community Convenant.

The convenant marks Ribble Valley’s pledge to support members of the armed forces living in the borough, nurtures public understanding and awareness of issues affecting service personnel, recognises the sacrifices faced by the armed forces and promotes activities aimed at integrating service personnel into the community while encouraging the armed forces to engage with the community through participation in events and join projects.
