Don Foster, MP for Bath met members of his constituency at a Parliamentary Reception held by the Wessex Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, which took place on Thursday 24th March at the House of Commons.

The event was hosted by Richard Drax MP and provided a briefing about the Reserve Forces (the Royal Naval Reserve, Territorial Army and RAF Reserve) in the South West and the vital support that they provide to the Armed Forces as a whole.

The reception also highlighted the positive impact of the Cadet movement as a youth organisation.

Commenting, Don Foster MP remarked:

“With the South-West boasting a significant presence of both Reservists and Cadets it was great to meet local representatives in Parliament; the Wessex Reserve Forces and Cadets Association are a real credit to the British Armed Forces.

“From our discussions it became very clear that just as our Armed Forces benefit immeasurably from the dedication of these men, women and young people, both Reservists and Cadets are given the opportunity to develop skills and gain experience in a challenging, yet exciting environment”
