Commenting, Seema said: “It was a privilege to lay wreaths on behalf of my constiteunts on the 100th year of the end of WW1. It is amazing to see how our community of South Ribble commemorated the 100 years of Armistice. Well done to all the knitters for the amazing window dressing, the Joyettes for all the money raised, and everyone else who has contributed in their own way to commemorate the fallen. More than a fifth of our Armed Forces are from the North West and we will continue to remember our servicemen and women of past and present for their incredible service to our country.”
