Motion: Silver Poppy of Remembrance

Council - 2nd July 2019

To consider the following motion to which due notice has been given:

“With the 75th Anniversary of the end of the second World War approaching, Council wishes to recognise the contribution of those who fought in that War from Fermanagh and Omagh. It notes that every year the number of our surviving veterans is reducing and time to provide public and appropriate recognition is running out. Council therefore, should come together to provide all surviving veterans of WW2 (including those in the Merchant Navy\) with a Silver Poppy of Remembrance to mark their service in the fight against Fascism and Nazism. These Poppies will be presented to all surviving Veterans who live within the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area at a special commemoration event organised by Council on Remembrance Day”.

Proposed by: Councillor Deborah Armstrong, seconded by Councillor Robinson
