It is one of my most important duties as MP for Northampton North to lay a wreath each Remembrance Sunday at All Saints Church in Northampton town centre, paying tribute to fallen servicemen and women, and it was a great honour to do so once again this year.
Remembrance Sunday this year returned to pre-pandemic arrangements, having been severely restricted in 2020.
We will continue to remember those who have fallen in the service of their country. After the church service and wreath-laying, I was pleased to be able to attend the Reserve Army Barracks on Clare Street in Northampton to meet soldiers and stakeholders.
As ever, let us not forget the sacrifice and bravery of those who paid the ultimate price: young men and women who gave up their futures, loves, lives and dreams to ensure that the freedoms they knew were protected; every war memorial in every village, every town and every city across our country is sacred and serves to remind us of the immeasurable gratitude that we owe to our armed forces, both past and present.
