Memorial garden award

The 6 Regiment Memorial Garden ‘A Homecoming Prayer’ recently won a Gold Award at Harrogate’s Spring Flower Show.

It’s now been moved to form part of a larger memorial space at the Regiment’s new base at Dishforth Airfield in North Yorkshire.

The Japanese-themed garden, which is currently being bedded-in, was designed by Northumbrian Landscaping owner Peter Cunliffe and sponsored by BALI.

BALI affiliate members supported the memorial garden by providing hard and soft landscaping materials.

BALI was also joined by main sponsor Hesco and worked with Help for Heroes to support the garden from conception through to build.

The garden was commissioned following the Regt’s return from being stationed in Germany.

Padre J Harding is still keen for volunteers and donors to get involved in the project.

At present 6 Regt’s green fingered spouses are helping to create portable gardens to go on display at RHS Garden Harlow Carr as part of the 6 Regiment RLC Memorial Garden Project.

The gardens will be shown at RHS Harlow Carr (in Harrogate) over 23-25 Jun.

The Royal Logistic Corps

Sports awards winners 2022 : Team of the year Royal Logistic Corps Cycling Association (RLCCA) Ladies team (Road and Mountain bike) are leading the way in Army Cycling.The success of the RLCCA Ladies team has grown from strength to strength over the last six years. Road Team Captain and Manager Maj Michelle Debono-Evans and 2IC Capt Sue Chittock combined with Major Tracey Mackenzie-Rayner for Mountain biking changed this by leading from the front on the bike and also igniting a successful recruitment drive for new ladies. The RLC ladies now field 4 of the 10 members of the Army Ladies Road Race Team and one of the 5 members of the Army XC MTB Team. Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
