Gathering for army families

Families of South Yorkshire soldiers serving in Afghanistan are invited to Renishaw Hall for a support event.

More than 50 family members of soldiers of the Light Dragoons Regiment are meeting tomorrow for a briefing about what the regiment has been doing on oversees tours.

Kieron Atkinson, vineyard manager at the hall and a former captain in the regiment, who organised the event, said: “I wanted to offer the families of my former regiment a place to meet that is different to the norm.”
