Fallen War heroes and veterans were honoured at a Remembrance Day Service in Colwyn Bay.

Staff, pupils and those associated with Rydal Penrhos played a significant part in the event, which took place on Sunday, November 13 at Queen’s Gardens.

A large crowd gathered near the war memorial to pay respects to those who had fought and died during battle.

A small service was conducted, before the parade moved on to St Paul’s Church.

Dignitaries at the service included Clwyd West MP David Jones, Cllr John Davies, mayor of Colwyn Bay and veterans from the region.

The school were one of many establishments that laid a poppy wreath at the town’s cenotaph to honour the fallen.

Acting head Roger McDuff, said: “It was a very moving and poignant service and it was lovely to see the school so well represented.

“It was also nice to see so many staff members there as part of different organisations, highlighting the good work that they are doing in the community.”

The event followed on from Rydal Penrhos’ Armistice Day service on Friday, November 11, where wooden crosses were placed in the Memorial Quad to mark the 106 members of the school community that lost their lives in battle.

A small Act of Remembrance was also held at the Preparatory School on the same day.
