We will remember them
After a busy saturday around Fifth Avenue, Moreley Grove and Rivermill with over 20 Labour activists knocking on over 600 doors, listening to residents concerns and taking notes to take up specific issues, Sunday was spent in more reflective mood.
It was wonderful to see so many people turn out at the Harlow Remembrance Day service at Netteswell Cross. In addition to representatives of the services and the Royal British Legion, there were Cadets, Scouts, and members of Harlow Youth Council, as well as many Labour colleagues and Councillors, and a broad spectrum of young and old bringing the Harlow community together.
It is important to remember those who gave their lives to fight for our freedoms in the 1st and 2nd World wars, as well as the four brave soldiers from Harlow who died more recently in Afghanistan. Whatever your views about interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, I hope we can all join together in respecting their sacrifice, having their friends and relatives in our thoughts and wearing our poppies with pride.
We will remember them.
