Supporting armed forces

The County Council is a proud supporter of armed forces in Nottinghamshire. We have a long standing relationship with the local regular and reserve units, as well as the veterans and cadets.

We also bring together councillors, officers and representatives from the armed forces and military civilians charities to work on activities and issues.

This is led by Councillor Keith Girling who is the Armed Forces Champion.  

"We should never forget the sacrifice and commitment shown by the men and women who serve and have served the nation, we are committed to supporting the whole armed forces community," Councillor Girling said. 

Our support for armed forces includes:

We have also been awarded the Gold Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

Remembrance Sunday Salute

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Remembrance Day this year is set to be a very different occasion. Where normally communities would come together in Acts of Remembrance, this year we must stay at home to mark the occasion during the national lockdown.  

We're encouraging all Nottinghamshire residents to show their support and join us in a Remembrance Day Salute, a two minute doorstep silence at 11am on Wednesday 11 November and remember those who fought for our freedom and the sacrifices they made. 

Check out of social media channels as we show our support for Remembrance Day. Why not share your tributes and stories with a photo of your doorstep salute. #NottsRemembers
