Remembrance Sunday in Llanidloes will be a little different to previous years as the town pays tribute to all those who lost their lives in conflicts.

The church service on Sunday, November 13, will now take place at 10am with a procession to the war memorial for 11am.

Llanidloes Town Council has revealed details about this year's event which will include a parade starting at 9.30am in High Street to St Idloes Church for 10am. After the church service has ended, the parade will reform and walk back to the Town Hall, Great Oak Street for 11am ready for the Last Post, two-minute silence and the wreath laying which everyone is is welcome to attend.

While coronavirus restrictions on social distancing were in place during the past two years, people gathered in the street to pay their respects.


At a recent meeting, Llanidloes Town Council heard that there had been complaints in previous years for not being at the war memorial at 11am.

Councillor Margot Jones said: "A church service is absolutely what we need to have. Being back here [Great Oak Street] for 11am would be fantastic."

Llanidloes Mayor Jamie Jones told the town council that it was a "good compromise".

He said: "Thank the Reverend for that. It's the best of both worlds."

The town council was also told that the mayor had overseen the repair of a drum costing £500.
