BEATING RETREAT HOSTED BY THE ROYAL YORKSHIRE REGIMENT & RFCA – 12.07.23

On Wednesday 12th July, the Master Cutler and Clerk were honoured to be guests at a reception and Beating Retreat, hosted by the Royal Yorkshire Regiment and the Reserve Forces and Cadet Association (RFCA).
At the reception, guests were informed on the excellent work that the RFCA does throughout Yorkshire with the Reservists, Veterans and Cadets. This work is truly impressive and employers are encouraged to sign up to support it through the Armed Forces Covenant. This is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
 
Major General Zac Stenning updated those present on the County’s Regiment and the diversity and complexity of its roles. He also highlighted the amazing people within the Regiment. Thank you for the invitation, it was a truly insightful evening.
