Liverpool's Reserve Army thanked

LIVERPOOL is marking Reserves Day, on Thursday, 8 September 2016, with a special event for Council staff who volunteer for the Armed Forces in their spare time.  Staff ranging from lifeguards to licensing officers who are members of the Reserve Forces will be thanked by the Lord Mayor at a reception at the Town Hall. It will also be attended by the High Sheriff of Merseyside, senior military personnel and senior Council managers. Reservists volunteer their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing busy home lives and various jobs at the Council with a military career, so that should the need arise, they are ready to serve. To show its thanks for their work, the Council is also allowing Reservists to swap their usual office attire for their military uniform, so they can demonstrate their pride in serving the country.

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "We all owe our Reservists a great deal of thanks for their selflessness in being willing to volunteer for the forces. It requires a great deal of sacrifice and commitment and impacts on family and home life in addition to their work commitments and I am delighted to be able to host this reception to pay tribute to their contributions to the forces."

Councillor Ian Francis, Armed Forces Champion, added:- "I wish to express my deepest admiration and thanks to our Reservist staff for the invaluable contribution they make to the Armed Forces and for their bravery and dedication to protecting the country's security, both at home and abroad."

The City Council offers up to 10 days paid leave to attend summer training camp each year, and unlimited unpaid leave for the duration of any period of active service. This is complemented by a wide range of flexible working policies and procedures.
