THOUSANDS of people gathered to honour the fallen at Remembrance Day events across the region on Sunday.

A parade starting from St Asaph Cathedral was held and wreaths were laid at the cenotaph where a two minute silence was observed.

In Rhyl, St Thomas’ Church held a memorial while Rhyl Silver Band led a parade on to Rhyl promenade to Rhyl Memorial Gardens where a silence was held to remember all those who had given their lives in times of conflict and those who had suffered due to conflict.

Wreaths were laid at Rhyl Cenotaph and a giant cross of poppies stood proudly at St Thomas’s Church - parishioners had spent the week pinning poppies and visiting to pay their respects.

Also in Rhyl, a collection took place for the Royal British Legion in Morrisons.

Charlie and Jill Whetnall, who were celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary, took part. The manager and staff presented the couple with gifts and flowers to celebrate.

In Prestatyn, a parade took place through the High Street which culminated in a service at the Parish Church.

The parade was attended by an Army Cadet Force.

Corporal Robert Lopane, 16, a student of Prestatyn High School, proudly displayed the Cadet Banner.

Abergele held a parade through the Water Street and Market Street areas of the town.

Zoey and Kiera the labradors were spotted wearing their poppies with pride at Pensarn's event.
