Many thanks to RBL for all its good work

REMEMBRANCE is al­ways a poignant time of year but this year it takes on spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance as we mark the cen­te­nary of the end of the First World War.

Across South Wales we have seen many com­mu­ni­ties dis­play pop­pies on lamp­posts to show their re­spect. This sim­ple ges­ture does a great deal to make us re­flect – and re­mem­ber those who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice.

The ladies at Cow­bridge Quil­ters, too, have done a fan­tas­tic job in cre­at­ing a com­mem­o­ra­tive quilt, em­broi­dered with the names of all the town’s fallen.

The work the Royal Bri­tish Legion does of­ten goes un­no­ticed – and takes place all year round – so I’d like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank them for all they do.

I will be pay­ing my re­spects this year at the Ceno­taph in Cow­bridge – and I would urge every­one to take a mo­ment to pause – and thank those who gave their lives to se­cure our free­doms.
