Freedom of the Borough Awards
This morning I attended a Civic Reception to mark the award of Freedom of the Borough of Wirral to two of our local volunteer Armed Forces squadrons.
234 (Wirral) Transport Squadron Royal Logistics Corps and 107 (Lancashire & Chester) Field Squadron Royal Engineers were on parade at Birkenhead Town Hall and received the scrolls from the Mayor. The reception was attended by the Duke of Westminster, the High Sheriff and Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside.
Esther McVey MP, Me, Cllr James Keeley, Cllr Paul Hayes, Cllr Sheila Clarke, Cllr Cherry Povall and Wirral Council Leader, Cllr Jeff Green.
The march past in front of Birkenhead Town Hall in Hamilton Square.
A very proud day and a reminder of the appreciation and respect these men and women deserve from us all.
