Sunshine and crowds for Remembrance Sunday in Aberystwyth

THE sun was shining on Aberystwyth this morning, Sunday (Nov 13) as people gathered in the Holy Trinity Church for Remembrance Sunday. Members of the public and Veterans joined in prayer together to commemorate and remember the fallen.

Rev. Robert Wilkinson

The service, led by Rev. Robert Wilkinson was held from 9:15 to 10:15. After the service had concluded, the procession proceeded out of the church and towards the town Library where a a larger gathering of people joined the parade as it made its way through the town ending at the War Memorial for a shorter service which would be held by Rev. Mark Ansell.

Pavements were lined with bystanders who watched as the parade passed by. Families had turned out to pay their respects to the Veterans who took part accompanied by a  band, which played familiar marching tunes.

At the War Memorial, a short service was held by Rev. Mark Ansell. Two minutes of silence were observed for the fallen at 11:00.

Representatives of the RNLI, Royal Navy Cadets, Army Cadets, Dyfed-Powys Police, Council Officials and the Scouts placed wreaths on the cenotaph to commemorate and remember the fallen.
