During Remembrance weekend, members of Stephenson Way’s Mini Police voluntarily gave their free time to show support for the brave men and women who have fought (and continue to fight) with our armed forces.

Accompanied by Mrs Hunter and Mrs Hill, they braved the cold as they sold poppies to passers-by in Newton Aycliffe town centre.

All money raised was donated to the British Legion, who continue to support our troops and fly the flag of remembrance so that generations to come will also value those lives given in battle.

Lest we forget.
