Remembrance Sunday

I was honoured to attend the moving Remembrance service in Deal on Sunday, and to lay a wreath of poppies at the war memorial at Deal Hospital.

I'm proud so many people in this area are as grateful as I am for the sacrifices our servicemen and women have made. It is difficult to describe, or even comprehend, what these people have done for us. Homes, friends and loved ones were left behind for the sake of perilous missions in appalling circumstances. Millions paid with their blood for the freedom we enjoy today. The respects we pay in return are a mere fraction of what is due.

Cllr Lesley-Ann Burke laid a wreath on my behalf at the Remembrance Sunday service in Dover at the war memorial in Biggin Street.
