This weekend saw a large number of Remembrance services across our community and country. I was proud to participate in services at City Hall, on West Lane and Old Jamaica Road, on Borough High Street and at the Imperial war Museum.
It was good to see such significant crowds attending each event. It is important we acknowledge the impact of war and the toll wars have taken on our area and beyond, for service personnel and civilians alike and in historic and current conflicts. Southwark has strong ties to our armed forces and I was proud to represent my own family as well as our whole local community in laying wreaths.
