The Deputy Premier represented Bermuda today at the opening of a Garden of Remembrance at the Palace of Westminster in London.

Walter Roban spoke as the garden, created to honour those who gave their lives in times of war, was opened by the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle.

Mr Roban, who has been in the UK at a climate change conference in Scotland, delivered the closing remarks at the ceremony on behalf of the UK’s Overseas Territories.

He also planted a Remembrance stake on behalf of Bermudians who served in two World Wars.

The garden will remain in place until Sunday, which is Remembrance Sunday in the UK.

The garden will have a Remembrance stake for each of the 650 constituencies in the UK, the 54 countries of the Commonwealth and the 14 British Overseas Territories when it is completed.
