Elected members of the Legislative Assembly are hosting a Public Reception at the Town Hall on Saturday 11 June when all members of the South Atlantic Medal Association 1982 will be presented with the Freedom of the Falklands or Freedom of Entry Certificate.
The centuries old tradition confirms the close bond between a certain person, group or military, with a city based on trust and/or exceptional achievements for neighbors of the city.
With Stanley now enjoying the status of city, it seems only natural that Falklands’ Veterans, SAMA 82 should be extended such Freedom
