Grecians and city council on the ball to back Armed Forces Covenant

Exeter City Council has linked up with Exeter City Football Club to show support for those who serve in the armed forces.

Both have backed Exeter’s Armed Forces Covenant, recognising the fantastic job that service personnel do and acknowledging their hard work and bravery.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

In Exeter, a number of businesses have signed up to the covenant and pledged discounts to service personnel and their families.

Exeter Chiefs toasted their first game of the New Year with victory, but this was hardly vintage stuff from Rob Baxter’s side in a contest that lacked any real fizz.

Devon’s finest extended their lead at the top of this season’s Gallagher Premiership by seeing off local rivals Bristol Bears in a contest that is unlikely to live long in the memory bank of the capacity crowd that packed into Sandy Park.

The Chiefs bounced back from their loss at Northampton Saints last time out to edge out their nearest and dearest for a second time this season.
