On Remembrance Sunday, Sir David Amess paid his tributes to the brave servicemen and women who fought for our country.
Sir David attended a small ceremony at the cenotaph with the Mayor, Mayoress and James Duddridge, MP for Rochford and Southend East, to pay his respects. Despite the Coronavirus restrictions and the usual Remembrance Sunday ceremonies disrupted, Sir David was able to attend local socially distanced ceremonies in the constituency. Sir David paid his respects at Priory Park with Prittlewell Councillors Meg Davidson and Kevin Buck, a ceremony outside at St Clements Church and one at Eastwood Memorial Hall with Eastwood Councillor Chris Walker.
Sir David said “it is important every year to remember those who fought for our freedom and democracy. We owe so much to our Second World War veterans and their bravery. Many of them paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country and we are eternally grateful”.
