A SERVICE of commemoration marking the end of the first world war 100 years on was held at Holy Trinity Church in Llandrindod Wells on Sunday afternoon.

The event was organised by the Llandrindod Wells Branch of the Royal British Legion to mark the anniversary and was led by the Revd Andrew Tweed. There was a packed church for the service during which the names of all those who gave their lives during the first world war from around the local area were read out by members of the local cadet forces.

Part of the service was devoted to an act of Remembrance in the Memorial Chapel, which is a tribute to those who gave their lives in conflict, depicting all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

Poppy wreaths were laid by Councillor Jon Williams the Mayor of Llandrindod Wells and John Scott the President of the Llandrindod Wells Branch of the Royal British Legion.

Musical items were given by the Ysgol Calon Cymru Choir and the Llandrindod Wells Town Silver band. Following the service a small parade past the town’s cenotaph took place.
