We will remember them

This morning, I attended the civic Remembrance Service at the Fairfield Halls followed by the laying of wreaths at the memorial outside the Town Hall.

It was fantastic to see so many people there - the last veteran of the great war may now have passed away and there are fewer and fewer veterans of the Second World War each year but it is vital that we continue to remember the sacrifices that those who fought in these wars and more recent conflicts have made for our freedom today. As usual, Canon Colin Boswell gave a wonderful sermon, this year touching on the moving story of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Westminster Abbey.
