Stephen Metcalfe, MP for South Basildon & East Thurrock, showed his respect and solidarity with the Armed Forces in Acts of Remembrance across the constituency at the weekend.
On Remembrance Sunday, Stephen attended a moving service at Stanford-le-Hope’s Cenotaph in front of St Margaret of Antioch Church. Stephen, alongside an array of local organisations, paid their respects at the monument, laid poppy wreaths, and held a two-minute silence with the crowd.
Stephen Metcalfe said: “I was very proud to mark Remembrance Day across the constituency. There is so much support for our veterans out there and I was pleased to see so many people show their respects at Remembrance Services in honour of those local heroes who have given their lives for this country.
We must remember them and remember how fortunate we are.”
