Our Estates Team has been very busy in the lead up to the cold season ❄️

Thanks for the latest updates on Halifax Army Reserve Centre, Hull and Belle View Army Reserve Centre, Bradford.

We successfully carried out works to make one facility look brand-spanking new and squashed ‘alien rumours’ from the other when we repaired the tarmac due to nine mysterious identical circles sprouting on the surface 🛠️

After years of working a desk job, Corporal Lee shifted gears and stepped out of her comfort zone to do something completely different. Here’s her story…

The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces and play a vital role in protecting the UK at home and overseas.

⭐️What a great day with our Employer Engagement Team at RAF Leeming for ‘The Day in the Life of a Royal Air Force Reserve’ which gave employers insight into the management, leadership and transferable skills that Reserves and Service leavers can bring to their civilian employment.

Guests were treated to a tour on site and interactive group exercises. An informative (and fun!) event for employers to learn more about supporting and partnerships with the Armed Forces Community.

Thank you to Squadrons 607 and 609 Royal Auxiliary Air Force for making this event possible.

Congratulations to Councillor Kalvin Neal, also known as Sergeant Kalvin Neal by The Royal Yorkshire Regiment, on his installation as Kingston-upon-Hull’s 110th Lord Mayor and Admiral of the Humber.

Sergeant Neal balances his duty as a local councillor with his service in the Army Reserve. As a member of Hull-based Alma Company 4th Battalion The Royal Yorkshire Regiment, Sergeant Neal serves on the Recruit Mentoring Team for the Territorial Army, then Reserve (1983-1989, 1993 to present). He was deployed in Iraq in 2004-2005 and on Operation RESCRIPT, the Army’s support to the COVID pandemic, in 2020. Along with fellow 4th Battalion Reserves, he will deploy on a major exercise in the United States this summer to train alongside the US National Guard.

The Lord Mayor says, “I am honoured to be the 110th Lord Mayor of Kingston-upon-Hull and Admiral of the Humber. I look forward to a great year; and a hopeful highlight during my tenure would be to have the newly named Royal Yorkshire Regiment take part in a Freedom of the City Parade before my service in the 4th Battalion comes to an end in November. I am also pleased that Maj Ben Norton, the Regimental Chaplain, has agreed to be my Chaplain. I look forward to many great events”.
