Have your say

Those criticising the Grantham Remembers concert (Journal, November 28) for taking place on November 15 have clearly forgotten the purpose of the commemoration events during this special Remembrance Week.

Setting aside the inaccurate and unfair accusations within it, we were not there for our own satisfaction but to remember the thousands of men who went on to a terrible fate in WW1 and to honour those who serve us still today. That people across our town might choose to commemorate and reflect upon the sacrifices made throughout Remembrance Week in their own different ways should have been expected and welcomed.

How sad that in a 100 years from now, after so much effort, when people look back in our archives, instead of a town united in remembrance, they will see that letter.
