    Rememberance Sunday in Llanon

     
    On the Sunday closest to Armistice Day (November 11th), the United Kingdom celebrates Remembrance Sunday when the nation pauses to remember those soldiers killed in conflict since the Great War (1914 - 1918). Our local community suffered 34 deaths in both wars and today held a cross denominational service (for both church and chapel members) at the village hall where four wreaths were laid by the church, chapel, Royal British Legion and community council (which I am a member of). At the meeting of council held last week, the chairman couldn't attend and as the vice chairman was already laying the wreath on behalf of the chapel, the other council members were asked if they would lay the wreath on behalf of the council. I asked, as that I have been the main poppy appeal collector for the village since 2013, would there be any objections if I laid it on behalf of the council. No objections were raised and so therefore I laid the wreath on behalf of the community council at today's service
