Armed Forces Week began on Monday, with virtual events (Due to Covid-19) throughout the week, each with a different theme, culminating this Saturday – Armed Forces Day.
Armed Forces Week is our chance to show our appreciation to the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community – from currently serving troops to service families, veterans, cadets and, to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Our family businesses have a strong personal connection to the Armed Forces.
Both McLeod’s and Meldrum are proud to hold Armed Forces Covenant’s, Mcleods Silver and Meldrum Bronze, but currently have our Silver application adjudged.
The Covenant is awarded to organisations who actively demonstrate a commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community. The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public, in order to support those who serve or who have served.
Our CEO, Derek Petterson, also served in the British Army for 7 years with the Royal Tank Regiment, completing tours of West Germany, Cyprus and Canada to name a few.
A subject with significant personal relevance, Derek, commented “I am very proud of our Armed Forces and for our team coming together to show our support and gratitude.
It was a great bit of team fun this morning, getting everyone in line before calling out the salute – it was just like back in the old days on Parade…”
