A PARADE took place in Rhuddlan this weekend to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
Sunny skies returned on Sunday for the Rhuddlan Remembers parade, which started at Rhuddlan library and proceeded to St Mary’s church where an ecumenical service of commemoration was held. A wreath was laid at the Cenotaph on Parliament Street by Mayor of Rhuddlan, County Councillor Ann Davies.
Councillor Davies said: “The sun was shining for the parade and the town turned out in force, it was pleasing to see how many of the local community came out to support this event.”
Scouts, Beavers, the Air Cadets, Soldiers and the ATC band all joined residents and dignitaries on the route through the town.
Mrs Davies also unveiled a large poppy made up of 223 smaller poppies, knitted by Rhuddlan’s Knitting Group in remembrance of those from Rhuddlan who sacrificed their lives for their country.
She added: "I was privileged to unveil the large poppy. A special thanks goes to the knitting group who have knitted a thousand poppies since January and also raising funds for the British Legion by selling them.”

The event was organised by Mrs Wenna Williams from the History Society and representatives of the Town Council - Cllr Sarah King and Cllr Andy Smith.

After the wreath laying the parade gathered at the community centre to enjoy a buffet and refreshments and war songs performed by The Vale Singers.
