Today I’ve been involved in responding to a request from the Families Officer for the regiment and Weeton Barracks. The troops are out in the battlefield, leaving their loved ones behind and as a gesture of support Fylde Council are putting on some Multi Sport session throughout half term.

I’m proud to be involved in supporting our soldiers families, and after having lived on Weeton Camp myself I know what it’s like being a child of a soldier when your father is away for weeks and months.

Regardless of the reason for the War (that was taken by politicians) it is the duty of us all to support those and their families who have to carry out the task. These sport sessions, at a time of conflict, are the least we can do at the Council.
