Yesterday the community in Newport came together to pay their respects to those who lost their lives in war.  I was honoured to lay a wreath in my capacity as MP for Newport East at Newport Cenotaph following representatives from our armed forces.  The number of people attending the service grows every year as we join together to remember those who gave so much.
