A PUB landlord has become the new president of the Morecambe and Heysham branch of the British Legion.

x-serviceman Mick Dennison, licensee of the York Hotel, will be invested as president in a ceremony at The Platform prior to this Sunday’s Remembrance Day parade.

Mr Dennison is a long time member and big supporter of the Legion, which holds regular meetings at his pub on York Bridge. He is also parade marshal for the annual Remembrance procession down the promenade.

The previous president, Harry Sheppard, has retired.
