Councillor Roger Ramsey, Leader of the Council, said:
“It’s only right that we stop and take a moment to recognise the great sacrifices made by our Armed Forces to protect our way of life. Remembrance Day gives us all a chance to honour those who served in the past and present and show our immense respect for them. I hope everyone attends one of the many services taking place across the borough.”
