It was an honour to take part in the Remembrance Day service in Worcester Park today.
I joined residents for a remembrance service at the Christ Church with St Philip Church on Ruskin Drive, before walking down to the War Memorial to lay a wreath and join in a two minute silence to remember the fallen and the injured of past and present conflicts.
I then had the pleasure of watching the parade pass along Central Road and finally joining everyone inside the Royal British Legion Club for some entertainment.
Conservative Councillors and members of my family also took part in Remembrance Day services across the Borough, taking part or laying wreaths in Carshalton, Wallington, Sutton, Belmont and Cheam.
I hope everyone uses today as an opportunity to remember and give thanks to those who have made great sacrifices for our freedoms.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
