Llanelli stops to remember at eleventh hour on eleventh day of eleventh month

SHOP workers, library staff, the staff of Llanelly House and passers by stopped and stood in silence at 11am on the eleventh day of the eleventh month to remember those who have fallen in war.

A small group of veterans gathered at St. Elli Church for a service of remembrance led by the Reverend Canon Huw Mosford.

Wreaths were placed by veterans and members of the Llanelli Boys Grammar School old boys and Graig former pupils association.

In attendance were the Mayor and Mayoress of Llanelli Chris and Sara Griffiths.

A bugler sounded the last post and standards were lowered to the ground by veterans.

As the hour of 11’o’clock struck people fell silent and marked one minute of silence.

The silence was broken by a bugler sounding the reveille.

The majority attending wore face masks and kept to the 2 metre social distancing rule.

2020 has been a difficult year for veteran organisations who would usually see large numbers of attendees at events such as this one in Llanelli Town Centre.
