Last week we staged our annual series of assemblies to mark Remembrance. Esteemed guests included The Mayor of Sunderland – Councilor Alan Emerson, Reverend Canon Sheila Bamber of Sunderland Minster, Sunderland Central MP Julie Elliott and local servicemen from our armed forces and emergency services.
The poignant service gave us time to reflect upon war and those affected by this, with particular emphasis on the atrocities happening today. A two-minute silence was also observed to further pay our respects. This will hopefully give cause for further informed reflection on Remembrance Sunday.
