Fife Chamber signs Armed Forces Covenant

October 6, 2016

First thing this morning saw HRFCA joining the early birds of Fife Chamber of Commerce for a business breakfast in the imposing surroundings of the Dunhill International Pavilion just across from the 18th hole of the R&A at St Andrews. 

Proceedings included an update from Development Director Sandy Richardson on progress in the prestigious V&A Design Museum development currently emerging from Dundee’s shiny new riverside development.

Star billing for us though was the co-signing (pictured above) by the Chamber of the Armed Forces Covenant, with John Silcock of Borland Insurance signing on behalf of the Chamber and Captain Chris Smith RN, Naval Regional Commander for Scotland and Northern Ireland, representing the MOD.

Chris thanked the Chamber for their continuing support to the Armed Forces Community and looked forward to ongoing and mutually-beneficial relations.

The event was rounded off with a tour of the R&A course and more bacon butties (or ‘breakfast canapes’ as we prefer to call them!)
