Brighton and Hove City Branch Royal British Legion, joined with St Mark’s Primary School in an ‘Act of Remembrance’ for the yearly remembrance weekend. Amongst those present was the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Bill Randall, The High Sheriff of East Sussex, Mr David Allam, and The Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Mr Peter Field.
Children joined members of the Royal British Legion in the presentation of standards and marched to the music of ‘Sussex by the sea’. They also joined in for the laying of poppy wreaths. The children’s dedication read:
‘We present these poppies from children to say thank you to all those who gave their lives so that we can live and be free’.
For the fallen by Laurence Binyon
‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.‘
