Remembrance: ‘We must not take for granted the sacrifices made on our behalf’

SIR – Remembrance Sunday is fast approaching, and once again offers the opportunity for people of all races, creeds, colours and political beliefs to join together and pay their respects to those who have given their lives for their country.

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM: The standards are lowered in view of the wreaths for the fallen during last year’s service in Castle Park, Whitehaven

It is important that we come together for the collective good, and Remembrance Sunday offers us the chance to do this. We must not take for granted the sacrifices made on our behalf over the years. Remembrance Sunday is an occasion to express our debt to those who have given their lives in conflicts, both in the two world wars and in others such as the Falklands, Iraq and Afghanistan

In Copeland there are a number of different services taking place on Sunday, including the ones I will be attending in Whitehaven and Cleator Moor. I would encourage as many of you as possible to join a service in your own town or village, or the ones in Whitehaven and Cleator Moor.

Lest we forget.

Coun Peter TYSON

Mayor of Copeland 2012/13
