Solicitors becomes first business in Bridlington to pledge its support to UK Armed Forces


Murray Hills Solicitors, which has offices across East Yorkshire, has shown its support to the UK Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant at its Bridlington base and in doing so has become the first organisation in the town to officially pledge its support to the Armed Forces Community.

The business serves a local, national and international client base, offering a wide range of services including property, Wills, probate and power of attorney.

The signing was attended by Major Lisa Marr of 4th Infantry Brigade Regional Employer Engagement Team and Richard Lenton, Regional Employer Engagement Director for the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Yorkshire and The Humber (RFCA).

Director Alex Cartledge said: “It means a lot to us here at Murray Hills Solicitors to sign the Covenant as it formalises our ongoing commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community. It has always been so important for us to give something back to those service men and women who do, or have done, so much for us.”

The Covenant is a written and publicised voluntary pledge from businesses and charitable organisations who wish to demonstrate their support for the armed forces community, and will see much closer collaboration between Murray Hills Solicitors and the Army based in Catterick Garrison, as well as the wider military forces in the area.

Major Marr said: “We are absolutely delighted Murray Hills Solicitors has agreed to sign the Covenant and show its commitment to respecting and supporting the Armed Forces.

“It is to everyone’s mutual benefit to recognise the value that our service personnel bring to the community. I’m really looking forward to looking at areas where we can work together over the coming years.” 

Under the covenant the British Army and Murray Hills Solicitors will work more closely together, exchanging skills, knowledge and opportunities.

Organisations which sign the Covenant also demonstrate recognition of the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families, contribute to business and the country.
