Annual Service of Remembrance held in town centre

Hundreds of people packed the centre of Llangollen this morning (Sunday) for the town's annual  Remembrance Day Service and parade. 
 
Police held back traffic as Castle Street and surrounding roads came to a standstill.
 
The service was led by the Rev Andrew Sully of St Collen's Church with other local clergy assisting.
 
Following the traditional two minutes' silence just before 11am, numerous local organisations stepped up to the war memorial to lay poppy wreaths as the names of the war dead were read out.
 
Llangollen Silver Band then led the parade through the town centre to conclude the morning's ceremony.
