West Norfolk Council has received an award in recognition of its support for the armed forces.

Council leader Nick Daubney collected the Corporate Covenant silver award at a ceremony in London.

And he said he was honoured to receive the award on the authority’s behalf.

Mr Daubney said: “Service personnel give up an awful lot in order to serve their country, something we all benefit from.

“It seems only fitting that we try to give something back by expressing our support through the corporate covenant.”

The presentation was made ahead of Armed Forces Day, which will be marked by the raising of the Armed Forces Day flag in Lynn’s Tower Gardens this Monday, June 22, at 10.30am.

The flag will be raised by borough mayor, Colin Manning. who said: “We have just marked the 70th anniversary of VE Day and are approaching the 70th anniversary of VJ day and so it is particularly poignant that we remember what sacrifices have been made and are still being made as we hoist this flag.

“I urge all members of our local community to join us in Tower Gardens for this highly important event.”
