Stephanie's Visit to Army Base

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle and Barnsley Gazette on 21st December, Stephanie recently visited Salisbury Plain as part of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme.

During her visit, Stephanie spent time with two regiments, 22nd Engineer Regiment and 19th Regiment Royal Artillery.

Stephanie met Matthew Kaye from Darfield, who serves in the 22nd, speaking to him about representing Barnsley in the armed forces, and how rewarding it is to build a career in the army.

Commenting, Stephanie said:

“I’ve always been a proud supporter of our armed forces, so it’s been immensely rewarding to learn more about the British Army through the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme.

“That’s why it was a real pleasure to visit 22nd Engineer Regiment and 19th Regiment Royal Artillery, and to meet my constituent Matthew Kaye, from Darfield.

“It was great to speak to Matthew about his role in the armed forces and his journey from growing up in here in Barnsley to serving in our army.”
