Town marks 99th Armistice Day

An Act of Remembrance to mark the 99th anniversary of Armistice Day, which saw the end of the First World War, was held this morning (Saturday) at the town's war memorial in Castle Street.

Led by the Rev Charles Stallard and former town mayor Mike Adams, the ceremony saw the parading of standards by veterans' organisations, the observing of the traditional minute's silence at 11am and the sounding of Last Post by a bugler from Llangollen Silver Band.

Around 50 people attended.

This evening a Festival of Remembrance, in aid of Help for Heroes and local causes, will be held at Llangollen Town Hall.

The programme of light entertainment will feature Llangollen Silver Band, Dinas Bran Chamber Choir, soloists and poetry readings. There will also be a drumhead service.

The event starts at 7 for 7.30pm and tickets are £6 (£5 concessions).

Tomorrow morning will see the annual Service of Remembrance at the war memorial.
