In 2021 Mr Speaker opened the first ever Constituency Garden of Remembrance at the House of Commons. That year, and again in 2022, many MPs planted Remembrance stakes dedicated to their constituents. This year, the Garden has opened again from 6 November.
Remembrance honours those who have served, or continue to serve, to defend and protect our democratic freedoms and way of life.
In our Remembrance commemorations:
– We remember the sacrifice of the armed forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth.
– We pay tribute to the special contribution of families and of the emergency services.
– We acknowledge innocent civilians who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism.
