Royal Military Academy Sandhurst

On Wednesday, 21st March Gabrielle Castell and Constance Sweeney, representing Camberley & District FD, were invited to a meeting at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Local dignitaries, council members, representatives from businesses, schools and hospitals were among the 160 invited guests.

The evening began at 6.30pm with welcoming drinks and a chance to mingle and chat with other guests. We were then ushered into the Indian Medal Room where we saw a short film and were given a presentation on the Army Covenant in Sandhurst and the local area.  The Army Covenant is a new policy whereby the Army is keen to interact with local agencies to facilitate easier transition of retiring personnel into local communities as well as garnering the necessary support network for military families and their children within the local area.

There followed a lively debate with a question and answer session. Afterwards we were treated to more drinks and nibbles and a chance to speak one to one with serving personnel.

All in all a very enjoyable and informative evening.
