71 Engineer Regiment Open Day 5th July 2014
71 Engineer Regiment shall host an Open Day / Families Day on 5th July 2014 followed by a cocktail party for employers in the evening.
The aim of the cocktail party is to inform employers of the benefits of employing reservists and supporting their career, with attendance by invitation only (focusing on existing employers and Plant/Driver/Artisan focussed employers).
The families / open day shall inform families, public and employers of the equipment and training that is available within the Regiment, other Arms and Services as well as charities. It is designed to be fun and interactive and although this event clashes with the SMA event in Renfrewshire, we hope that it can compliment the event and add to the family themed activities that are happening this day.
