Remembrance Sunday

We are pleased to confirm that this year’s Annual Service of Remembrance will take place with limited restrictions on Sunday November 14 2021 at the Royal Welch Fusilier Memorial in Bodhyfryd Wrexham.

The military parade will leave Hightown Barracks and will be joined on Chester Street by veteran groups, youth groups including Cubs and Brownies and other local organisations to march to the Memorial for the start of the service.

Work in social care and be the lifeline your community needs.

The service will begin at 10.55 and at 10.59 a bugler will sound the “Last Post” and the two minute silence will be observed.

You are invited to attend this very poignant event to remember those who fought and lost their lives during WW1, WW2 and subsequent conflicts.

This year, due to the ongoing pandemic we are asking everyone who attends to consider wearing a mask especially if they cannot keep socially distanced from those around them. There will also be no public access to the Memorial Hall either before or after the event as it’s currently being used as a Covid-19 testing site.

Anyone who would like to lay a wreath but who is not able or does not feel comfortable attending a large event can do so after the service when there will be less people around.

The Order of Service is available to download here, and copies will also be available on the day.

Barriers will be put in place at 10.30am at the following locations to allow the parade to pass safely and to secure the surrounding area:

• Chester Street (adjacent to the former Feathers pub)
• Holt Street (by the Welch Fusilier pub)
• Chester Road (near the Chester Road/Powell Road roundabout)

Access to the Bodhyfryd Car Park adjacent to Waterworld will therefore be available only until 10.30am.
