Armed Forces Community Covenant
On 6 September 2013, Mole Valley District Council signed an Armed Forces Community Covenant with the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Headley Court and representatives of the military, business, faith and voluntary communities in Mole Valley.
What is a Community Covenant?
A Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local Armed Forces Community. It is intended to complement the Armed Forces Covenant, which outlines the moral obligation between the Nation, the Government and the Armed Forces.
The Purpose of the Covenant
The Mole Valley Community Covenant is a commitment to recognise and respect the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and the importance of supporting them in their military and civilian lives.
The signing of the Covenant furthers the strong ties which have been forged between the Armed Forces within Mole Valley and Mole Valley District Council, which included the granting to DMRC Headley Court of the Freedom of Mole Valley in 2010 and the Armed Forces Parade through Dorking High Street in June 2013, which was supported by more than 5,000 people.
As part of its respect for the armed forces, Mole Valley District Council also organises and participates in annual commemoration events on Remembrance Day and supports Armed Forces Day.
