    Rushen Parish Commissioners is the first parish authority in the Island to sign a Community Covenant with the British Armed Forces.

    Mr Stanley Pilling signs as the chairman of Rushen Parish Commissioners and his wife Sheila Pilling signs as the chairman of Port Erin Royal British Legion.

    A Community Covenant is a voluntary statement of mutual support between a civilian community and its local armed forces community.

    Mr Pilling said “he was proud to endorse on behalf of the community the continuing connection with the armed forces within our community”

    Mrs Pilling said “She was pleased that her community of Rushen was the first of the Parishes to adopt the Community Covenant and looks forwards to other Local Authorities following suit”
