Emma Reynolds, MP for Wolverhampton North East, attended the Remembrance Service on Remembrance Sunday at St Thomas’ Church in Wednesfield to honour the brave men and women of our armed forces.

The service commemorated the sacrifice of all of those who have fallen in conflict fighting for our country, and those British servicemen and women who are serving today.

“This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and therefore the service held special significance in commemorating the courage of those who fought against the Nazis and fascism. The people of Wednesfield and across Wolverhampton will never forget their brave sacrifice. The service also gave thanks to British soldiers today who are serving as peacekeepers around the world.”

“I would like to encourage local young people, their parents and grandparents to continue to commemorate this moving and poignant occasion. I would also like to thank the Royal British Legion in Wednesfield for helping to organise this event and the procession to the church. The annual Remembrance Service could not take place without their dedication and commitment to marking Remembrance Sunday.”
