Dover Remembrance Sunday

It was fantastic to see so many Dover people attend the Remembrance Sunday Service at the war memorial. Over 400 gathered to pay their respects to those who fought and died to keep our country safe. Veterans and cadets marched to the memorial and I was proud to lay a wreath for those who died.

This year marks the 100th anniversary since the start of the First World War. Over 888,000 soldiers from Britain and the Commonwealth died over the four year conflict. Hardly a single town or village was unaffected. Dover was no different. We remember their memory and never forget their sacrifice to preserve our freedoms and way of life.
