We were absolutely delighted that Corby Borough Council unanimously voted to support the Conservative proposal of granting the Royal Anglian Regiment the honour of Freedom of the Borough.
When the Corby Conservative leader, Cllr David Sims, first advanced the idea to the council it was met with widespread support and we are extremely proud that the commendation has now been presented to the regiment.
The bravery of our armed forces is admirable and honouring their loyal service and enormous sacrifice is the very least we as a borough could do.
We are incredibly grateful to the men and women who risk their lives daily in the service of this great country so that we may live in a safer and more secure world.
