Teams made up of local reservists and employers took to the golf course as part of a defence employer engagement programme.

The event, at Erewash Valley Golf Club in Stanton By Dale, allowed employers to spend time with a variety of reservists in order to learn more about the Reserve Forces and the benefits that military training can bring to the civilian workplace.

Phil Giles, chairman of the East Midlands Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all employers for giving up their time to further their knowledge about the Royal Naval Reserve, Royal Marine Reserves, Army Reserve and Royal Air Force Reserve.”
