As a proud and patriotic part of our great country, I know that people across Mansfield will do our Armed Forces proud.
Having attended the Civic Centre/St Peter's ceremony and parade for the previous two years, I laid a wreath at Warsop today.
It was a well attended ceremony in the brilliant sunshine and a real highlight that there were so many young people in attendance; scouts and brownies, local schools etc, all playing an active part. So important to make sure the significance of these events is passed on.
"With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free."
