Minera’s act of Remembrance on Saturday 11 November was blessed with an interlude of bright and dry weather. Our new curate Rev. Emma Dale presided, and around 50 residents of the community were in attendance, include a strong turnout of children from Minera School looking smart in their uniforms, and the Headmaster Spencer Williams gave a Bible reading.
Wreaths were laid by Minera Community Council, Minera School, the Royal British Legion and North Wales Police, with a number of personal tributes also being placed at the memorial.
Vic Barclay honoured us all with a most respectful recital of the names of the fallen, and the two minutes of silence was impeccably observed.
Minera Community Council is grateful as always for the support and attendance of the Salvation Army and the Royal British Legion, who respectively provided the music and the banner party which completed and enhanced the simple dignity of a very moving service for all who came to take part.
Tea and coffee were enjoyed by a number of attendees afterwards at the Tyn y Capel.
