Countdown to Christmas. Day 22 - we shall not forget them...

I cite this endlessly, but the significance of Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday cannot be understated.

There's something really important about it in a societies make-up and it's great to see it making such a recent revival - sadly due to the number of international conflicts we are engaged in.

This year saw a large number of ceremonies and I was proud to play my small part in proceedings locally.

And well done to Linda Chung, an amazingly energetic councillor in Hampstead Town, for securing a private donation to restore the memorial at Jack Straw's Castle.
