A chance to appreciate the essential role of Reservists in meeting the UK’s defence capability on Reserves Day 2018.
Last year, we ran a hugely successful campaign in celebration of Reserves Day:
Working closely with our local units, we introduced you to four of our Reservists, sent press information out to local press and encouraged employers in the region to take part in Reserves Day activities.
Our efforts to raise the profile of Reservists during Armed Forces Week yielded huge support from BBC Radio Suffolk, BBC Radio Essex and Bedford Today. Traffic to our website almost doubled during the period and engagement on our social media channels more than doubled.
This year, we’re encouraging you all to take part by talking about what Reserves Day 2018 means to you with your friends, colleagues and family.
Place an official banner under your email signature.
Post an intranet article about the Reserves in your area.
Send a press release to your local paper showing your support for the Reserve Forces.
Host a lunch-time talk about the Reserve Forces and play a few fun command tasks.
Take part in the #SaluteOurForces social media campaign.
Sign the Armed Forces Covenant as a business.
Support an Armed Forces Day event local to you.
Display an Armed Forces Day flag outside your home or office.
Join us again this year in showing appreciation for the ordinary men and women doing extraordinary work protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas.
