On the 29th June, we were invited to an Armed Forces Day event at Gillingham’s Great Lines Park.

This fantastic event saw the local community come together to show their support for servicemen and women.

On The Day 

Saturday 29th June was officially ‘the hottest day of the year’ with temperatures soaring to 31C, but that didn’t put people off.

The event saw displays and parades from various divisions; Royal Engineers, the Infantry, Royal Navy and many more.

Our Invite

As part of the Armed Forces Covenant, we were invited to exhibit at the Great Lines event.

Our recruitment team were on-site with our new training coach to discuss employment opportunities after service. The event was a huge success for us, it attracted over 20 academy sign ups and 6 new driver recruits!

A Couple of Special Visitors

We had a special visit on-board our training coach from the Deputy Mayor of Medway, Habib Tejan. Our Group Training and Development Manager, Simon Le Mar was on-hand to discuss The Kings Ferry and our new Driver Training Academy.

The Deputy Mayor wasn’t the only one who was impressed by our coach, this dog seemed to enjoy his time on-board too.
