BIG guns and sunshine were ablaze at Hillsborough Castle as a 21 Gun Royal Salute was fired to mark the Official Birthday of the Queen.
Lisburn and the surrounding area was well represented amongst guests from the sphere of business invited to enjoy the centuries-old military tradition.
Welcoming guests Trevor Salmon, Chairman of SaBRE (Supporting Britain's Reservists and Employers) said, "One of our most important roles is to help make the business community more aware of what the Reserve Forces actually do, both at home and abroad. There can be no better method of increasing knowledge than good, old fashioned
'show and tell' and we welcome opportunities such as this to showcase Reservists, professionalism and skills.
"I think many employers are both surprised and impressed when they discover the vast ranges of experiences and learning opportunities available within the Reserve Forces. The skills of discipline, teamwork, commitment and leadership are just some of the benefits which Reservists bring to their civilian workplaces and, as the employers who joined us at Hillsborough heard, there are tangible, immediately transferable benefits too, including many nationally recognized training accreditations."
