I think this will probably be my proudest day as mayor of Shildon. So many people turned out to honour those who died serving our country, or were injured both physically or mentally, as well as those who are serving today. It was a great honour that Olga was there to lead the laying of the wreaths and to have John with us together with our friends from the recently revived British Legion branch in Shildon. It was wonderful to see so many children there from the rainbows, brownies and scouts. My thanks go to everyone involved including the representatives of our local churches and the bugler from the Salvation Army.
