Caroline Flint took part in the Remembrance Service at St Peter's Church Conisbrough, followed by the parade and wreath laying.
At the event, Ms Flint met World War II veteran Fred Adamson, one hundred years old on Friday 15 November.
Said Caroline: "It was an honour to meet Fred Adamson, a World War 2 veteran, now at the great age of 100 years old. Fred's service during World War 2 took him to Iceland, France, Belgium and Germany.
"We honour Fred and all those men and women who responded to the call to protect our freedom when our nation was in peril. And today, we remember those who paid the ultimate price."
"Rev Martijn Mugge organised a wonderful service of Remembrance and St Peter's Church was beautifully adorned with the altar draped with poppies."
St Peter's Church, which was draped with a poppy banner, has been a meeting place for Christians in Conisbrough since 750 AD.

Caroline Flint MP joined parish councillors and Tracey Wood, partner of Michael Townsend, at the Rossington Miners Welfare to unveil the latest Defibrillator in tribute to Michael, a popular local postman in Rossington.
Said Caroline: "Michael Townsend was a very popular figure in Rossington and his work brought him into contact with many residents. This a lovely and fitting tribute to him."
Michael was a postman in Rossington for over 20 years and was very much loved and respected by all his customers. He was a keen cricketer, playing for Rossington to a high standard, and he was known for being a good bowler. His other love was fishing, which he did right to the end. He would travel the length and breadth of the country fulfilling his passion.
Sadly, Michael passed away suddenly at the age of 48, just as he was embarking on a new venture to foster children, something he’d been looking forward to doing for many years. His partner Tracey will carry on to fulfil his dream. Parish councillor Bob Anderson thought it was a fitting tribute to dedicate a defibrillator, that will hopefully save lives, to his much missed and esteemed colleague Michael. This suggestion was welcomed by Rossington Parish Council.

Caroline Flint and Cllr Phil Cole joined Scout Leaders, Rev Ian Smith, parish councillors and residents to light a new Community Field of Remembrance at St Peter’s Church Warmsworth to all those who lost their lives in Edlington & Warmsworth serving in the two world wars.
The idea for the Field of Remembrance came from Shaun McDermott, Cub Scout Leader for 1st/36th St Peter’s Warmsworth Scout Group.
Said Caroline: “The Field of Remembrance has been very well received. All of the names in this field carry stories of heroism, personal sacrifice and lost love. Their memories are carried by relatives living today. The lighting of the field makes it become brighter as the light fades at the close of day. I was very honoured to be asked to play a small part in the lighting of this field.”
Said Cllr Phil Cole “Shaun McDermott’s idea was simple and inspirational. Every cross in this field is dedicated to one or more of our fallen - 133 crosses, for 138 of the Edlington & Warmsworth’s fallen, plus a large cross for those who died in conflict since the great wars, but are not on the war memorials. This field makes you pause and reflect on those who gave everything so we could enjoy our lives today.”
The field will be illuminated every day from 7-9pm between 4 November and 11 November.
