Conwy Town Council usually work with the Royal British Legion to organise Remembrance Events in Conwy and Llandudno Junction, but the Covid-19 pandemic makes it impossible to hold these events safely this year according to the Mayor, Councillor Emma Leighton-Jones.
“After careful consideration and much thought, we have made the incredibly sad decision that we cannot run our Remembrance Events at the Cenotaph in Conwy or the Memorial Hall in Llandudno Junction. In line with national advice we cannot safely hold any parades or official services of Remembrance on Sunday 8 November. Instead, we are encouraging residents and veterans to pay their respects at home, by observing the national two-minute silence and following special Town Council videos and pictures on social media. As many of you will know, in recent years the Remembrance Parade, Act of Remembrance at the Cenotaph and church service have grown in numbers and we have seen a wonderful turnout. This year due to regulations in place we need to avoid a mass gathering and keep our community safe.”
This year will be very different but the Town Council do intend to hang a banner outside of the Guildhall in Conwy to commemorate the fallen and will ensure that a donation will be made to Royal British Legion that reflects the money which would otherwise have been spent on Remembrance Day activities.
