Over the weekend I was pleased to support Royal British Legion poppy collectors in Erewash. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance and is worn as a show of support for our Armed Forces community.
There are a number of events occurring across Erewash this Remembrance Weekend, including in Ilkeston and Long Eaton. TrentBarton is offering free travel on all services for veterans and current members of the armed forces, just show your warrant cards.
I look forward to paying my respect to our armed forces over the coming days both in Erewash and Westminster. I am extremely proud of our armed forces, and I always wear my poppy with pride.
