VETERANS have thanked the Mayor's Office for its support to help Wolverhampton remember those who have served – and gave their lives – in the Armed Forces.

Lyndon Purnell, chair of the central branch of the City of Wolverhampton Royal British Legion, presented Wolverhampton City Council's Civic Support Manager Lynn Bishop with a poppy brooch in recognition of the work she and her colleagues do to arrange events marking Remembrance Sunday, Armed Forces Day, VE Day and VJ Day.

Lynn said: "The Mayor's Office has a great relationship with the veterans in Wolverhampton, especially the Royal British Legion.

"They contribute significantly to our ceremonial occasions and are committed to showing Wolverhampton at its best."

Lyndon Purnell, chair of the central branch of the City of Wolverhampton Royal British Legion, said: "We presented Lynn with a token of our appreciation for all the hard work she and her team have done for us over the years."
