We will remember them. Full programme of Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying events

HE Mayor will lead the borough’s Remembrance Sunday as ceremonies and services are held right across the borough.

Mayor, Councillor Carole Morgan, said: “We must never forget the sacrifice made for our freedom and this is the most important event on the calendar. These services not only remember those who died or were wounded and who served in the great wars in the first half of the last century – although they very much do remember them – but all those who have served since. I would urge everyone to attend their nearest service.”
