Heroes Welcome in Guildford
The Heroes Welcome scheme started in Scarborough when a few local businesses grouped together in order to offer visiting service personnel special discounts.
Guildford Borough Council has signed up to the Heroes Welcome campaign to show support for British armed forces personnel. We are working with local businesses to offer discounts, service upgrades or special acknowledgement. Keep a look out for places where they display the Heroes Welcome in Guildford logo.
A previous Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Marsha Moseley, announced that Guildford would be supporting the Heroes Welcome scheme at the flag raising ceremony for Armed Forces Day 2010.
The scheme aims to provide a heroes welcome to the men and women of the British armed forces (including reserved forces) and veterans on production of an identification card.
The scheme is being backed by Surrey Chambers and a local football club, Guildford City FC, has pledged to offer a discount to any serving personnel that attend their matches.
All businesses who sign up to the scheme will be listed here, so do check back regularly as new businesses will be added all the time, as they sign up.
To sign up, simply download the Registration Form and return it to the Civic Secretary.
