AS leader of Royston Town Council I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the lack of attendance at the remembrance service for the 25th anniversary of the Falklands war.
This was, as I found from my fellow councillors, something that we as a whole knew nothing about.
At the meeting held on Monday, it was discussed and confirmed that the town clerk was also unaware of the ceremony and that the town mayor had been invited to lay a wreath by the Royal British Legion personally.
As a matter of courtesy I feel the Royston branch of the Royal British Legion should have sent an official letter to the town clerk, who would then have circulated the information to all councillors , many of whom were aggrieved at the tone of the article in last week's Crow and would, had they known, have attended the ceremony, myself being one of them.

I hope that if there are to be any future ceremonies of this kind that the town council is formally notified.

# Crow note: The service was a public ceremony and not one for which a specific invitation was needed.
Indeed, many members of the public did attend.
There was a report in The Crow the previous week giving details about the service.
