Remembrance Sunday 2023

Andrew attended Remembrance Sunday commemorations in Brigg and Barnetby this year.

Following the visits, Andrew said, *"It was a privilege to attend the Remembrance Sunday parades in Brigg and Barnetby today.

"Many thanks to all those who organised these events and thanks also to all of the groups who supported them. Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, local schools, sports clubs and community groups all played their part today.

"A special thank you to the Brigg Air Cadets who led us off on both parades and who did a very professional job. "I also really enjoyed the Barnetby Silver Band's performance at the church service this afternoon.""*

In addition, Andrew also paid his respects at the Constituency Garden of Remembrance in Parliament.

Andrew said, *"It was an honour to also pay tribute to our Armed Forces at the Constituency Garden of Remembrance in Parliament.

"This is the third year in which Parliament has partnered with the Royal British Legion to create the Constituency Garden of Remembrance, found just opposite Big Ben. MPs are given the opportunity to plant a Remembrance tribute on behalf of their constituencies, honouring those, both past and present, who have defended and continue to defend our way of life.""*
