Day of Remembrance

Today's Remembrance Day service in Dover was a moving occasion with hundreds turning up to attend. This is a day when we remember the fallen - and those engaged in current conflicts, together with their families and our prayers that they have the kit they need to do their job. This day is not just about remembrance - it is also a reminder to heed past mistakes in thinking about our hopes, aspirations and ambitions for the future.

After the service, I went to join the Legion in Deal for a pint, as you do. There I met the Youth Mayor. I was really impressed with her passion for the future and what we can do. The young of today are our tomorrow - and I am very proud of this next generation growing up. They will do so well.
