Would you like to know more about issues like housing, health, employment and volunteering?

Members of Shepway's Armed Forces Community and their families are being invited report to Basecamp KENT at Folkestone Sports Centre on Friday 17 February.

The event, which runs from 10.30am to 3pm aims to show what help is available on issues like housing, health and employment, and to promote volunteering and other activities. Organisers also hope that it will give former and serving serviceman the chance to meet old friends and make new ones. Activities, entertainment and refreshments will also be provided.

The event is being run in partnership between Shepway District Council and Royal British Legion Industries and is part of the council's   commitment to its Armed Forces Covenant - a promise that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

No appointment is needed and all members of the armed forces community are welcome to attend at Folkestone Sports Centre, Radnor Park Avenue, Folkestone CT19 5HX
