The Army Benevolent Fund and Mole Valley District Council are working with Headley Court the rehabilitation centre for injured military personnel to facilitate a march through Dorking by members of staff (I am not sure at this stage if any patients will be involved). The date – 28 June.
I have said I will find at least 20 if possible 30 former police officers to assist as Stewards along the High Street in Dorking. Timings have not been finalised but I would suggest the commitment will be within the envelope of 1030-1430 to allow for a briefing before deployment. Local schools have committed to lining the route and a large crowd can be anticipated.
This is an opportunity to do something positive to show our appreciation for all the wonderful work undertaken at Headley and recognise those men and women who have been injured during their service.
More details to follow.
Please let me know if you can commit yourself for a few hours to fulfil what for many can be seen as fulfilling a debt of gratitude. (No max-pax or Police Support Unit kit but a fluorescent tabard will be provided. I suspect you will have to live off the land but the parade route will I believe be closed for an hour.)
