About 100 people turned out to pay their respects at the service led by Reverend Chris Feak at St Mary's church on Remembrance Sunday.

Cllr Jones said: ".We had an extremely good turnout, it was nice to see so many young people pay their respects and an increased in numbers from last year.

"I'd like to thank the Towyn and Kinmel Bay Royal British Legion and St Mary's for staging the perfect event."

Deputy Mayor, cllr Morris Jones laid a wreath at the cenotaph in the church grounds on behalf of Towyn and Kinmel Bay Town Council, with AM for Clwyd West Darren Millar representing the Welsh Assembly and PSCO Kerry-Lea Adams Lewis laying a wreath on Behalf of North Wales Police.

Mr Feak gave a short service outside as several residents laid crosses and the Last Post was called by a bugler, before a second service inside the church.

Also marking the occasion were pupils and staff of Ysgol Y Foryd Infant school on Morfa Avenue, who observed the centenary anniversary on Friday, November 9 in song and with a two minute silence before laying poppies alongside a silhouette memorial in the school's gardens.
