Stephen Morgan, Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South, hosted a Christmas reception on Friday at his new constituency office to pay tribute to all those who have served the nation in the armed forces.
The event, which also saw representatives from local groups who support ex-service personnel in attendance, saw veterans from across the city join the reception for festive refreshments and entertainment from Craneswater Junior School choir.
Stephen Morgan MP said:
“I’m hugely proud of our city’s rich military heritage, with Portsmouth the home of the Royal Navy.
We’re also home to a wide range of excellent charitable and community organisations supporting ex-service personnel and their families.
The least I could do this Christmas was to throw open the doors to the new constituency office and thank our great city’s veterans.
It was so good to see so many people who have served our nation over the decades come together and get into the festive spirit”.
