As we approach Remembrance Day our thoughts turn to those who sacrificed their lives so we can live in freedom.
All of our residents lived through the Second World War, a few served in our forces, but all experienced that tumultuous time when families and communities were torn apart. Everyone has experienced personal loss and loved ones are missed throughout the year, but at this time it is also an opportunity to thank those who served and survived.
The selling and wearing of poppies is a small way we can thank and support our armed forces.
…..we shall remember.
