Neil: "I was proud to attend and lay wreaths on behalf of everyone in Bermondsey and Old Southwark at a number of services, including: at City Hall; on West Lane; at the memorial to the Queen’s Regiment on Old Jamaica Road; at the St Saviour’s memorial on Borough High Street; and at the Imperial War Museum".
"I joined the excellent local poppy sellers at their Bermondsey station stall last week where I was honoured to meet Joseph Eagle who is 96 and grew up (and still lives) in Bermondsey. Joseph joined the RAF aged just 18 in 1939, and fought for our country throughout World War II. He and all the Bermondsey poppy sellers raised good sums for the British Legion and I thank everyone for their generosity".
