Remembrance Day

Remembrance day is always a special day in the year to remember those who have died serving this country. This year was of course extra special, as the centenary year of the end of the First World War.

Michael attend several Acts of Remembrance across the constituency on Sunday.

Shortly before sunrise he went to Poole Park to hear a lone piper play Battle's O'er which was a nation-wide event involving over 200 pipers all over the country.

In the morning he went to Wareham for the parade and act of remembrance, and then he visited St Mary's church in Lytchett Matravers to see the history display about the war. Whilst there the bells were rung in a celebratory peal, as they did across the country, remembering the bells ringing out at the end of the war.

In the afternoon he joined local councillors, uniformed groups and hundreds of residents in Corfe Mullen for the parade and service.

He ended the day in Wimborne to see the lighting of the beacon.
